The 300 is a nice. I think all cases should have the psu at the bottom.

The Cooler Master Elite 330 is another nice budget case.

Seriously.. a NZXT Tempest is cheaper than that if you buy it from SurgeVel, and he'll hook you up with a good deal since you're a member here

the whole front part (the door and what not.. not the additional weird shield thing) is more than likely plastic... i've felt my fair share of cheap cases

Everything on that case, save for the chassis itself and the metal parts of the side panels is plastic.

Actually it looks like surgevel has a deal on the Nemesis too.

NZXT Tempest, Khaos, Zero, Lexa BlackLine, and more!

It looks like something a 12 yr old kid would play with.

It looks as if a toy shield has been glued onto to the front.

The Tempest and Antec 900/1200 are OK, but I personally prefer subtle curves of some sort like those found in the Cosmos.

Default Re: Where Can I find ALIENWARE cases?

Is there really a Huge difference from aluminum or plastic? (case regarding)

As far as i know, plastic heats less, or atleast does not transfer the heat as much as aluminum, so whats with all this bad plastic cases?

Another great case I find neat, and really cheap is the Apollo, but they are really cheap, is there a reason for their cheapness?

Looks like I have a bad taste in cases, so can anyone recommend me one, that does have a nice front cover? something that does not have a bunch of holes in the front like the antec 900, which is what i have.
