Default Samurai 908 gaming case

http://buyraidmax.com/product.php?pi...ff61a1ea61b64a

I am going to be buying a new case pretty soon and I quite liked the look of this one. Any comments on this case?- it looks pretty good to me. But alternative suggestions are welcome.

The case I have at the minute is pretty small but does the job. In about 18 months I may revamp my whole system and I mainly play games so I am trying to be sensible and choose a good case that I can use in that new build.

If you like that type thing, then it's great. You will want to replace the PSU, though.

Personally, I'd recommend the Antec PERFORMANCE TX TX1050B Black Steel Server Computer Case 500W ATX12V v2.0 Power Supply

Flashy it ain't, but it is big and roomy and has an awesome PSU, as well as good airflow.

Cheers for the reply. The reason I consider the samuri case is because I can get it without the psu and it actually happens to be a fairly cheap option over here in U.K. I would get it in silver probably as I don't want it to be an eyesore lol

I have also looked at the antec P180 (I think) which is quite a large case with different compartments for psu and motherboard. It looks like it has good airflow and is supposed to be quiet.

The main things I am looking for in a case are 1/airflow 2/quietness 3/ looks -in that order.

Yea one with a window like the one in your sig would be nice to show off my hardware(when I actually upgrade to a decent setup lol!). All the same as much as I want looks I also want a practical case which keeps the components cool. What is the make/model of your case please?
