Default Building a Server

Hey, My brother is starting his own gaming clan and I'm going to set up a website for him. I'm going to try to make a server out of some spare parts I have using 2 pentiums II's and a dual slot mobo. I'm going to try to put SCSI drives in there also, if my budget allows it. I was searching for a new case and can't find much. I need somehting that has good airflow, not to fancy, and is easy to pop things in and out of. I am on a budget and don't want to pay more than $60 for a case. I've looked at some Lian Li cases but they are $200, way out of my price range. Can anybody help me out?

Get a Thermaltake Xaser case, which is actually made for server setups.

There is a lot of cases out their. Go to www.newegg.com and click cases and go through all the ones in your price range. Lian li are super nice. The nicest server case is the cube server case. Thing is huge i have no idea how much it costs.

do you really need such a big case? get something like a mid tower with a ps and some fans.

AndrewtheGreat, when I see your configuration, I remeber
my firs computer nearly same, only the video card was 1MB.

Back on the topic.

I think the case for this SERVER is the last thing to worry.
Any whay this case will be under the desk, or covered with
expired cinema tickets.

All ways keep in mind that the package is not making the content.
Completlly oposite.....

I guess I got kind of carried away, this thing is too big. Thanks for bringing me back to reality!
