I like that case but always beware of the power supply they give you. You should go with a good brand power supply. I never buy a case and power supply combo. See my sig. for details

Don't Read reviews on the seller page.
Raidmax power supplies included with cases are NOT "good".

Go with fortron 400 or 450 watt.
Or rosewill.

I have said it before and I will say it again Be careful of reviews. What reviews? The ones off of Newegg? Well it's great that they said it actually works. But most of us here would agree that you should go with a good brand of power supply. It's up to you though if you want to take the risk.

The door on mine is plastic but the rest of the case is steel. It is actually a very nice case. The one in my Sig. anyway.
