Default Which case?

I am wanting to build a new computer, I am torn between these two cases. http://colorcases.com/Cases/cobras.htm and http://colorcases.com/Cases/greendragon.htm .

If you have any info on these please post it. I am also open to suggestions for other pc cases that are are under $100. I am going to be using a P4. Any help is greatly appreciated.

fact of the matter is that the cobra contains a side mounted fan which is useful for a cpu air duct, overall they are the same case, but if you are gonna put some serious hardware in there i recommend the one with the more fan spaces

Okay thanks. Are there any other cases that you would recommend? They don't have to be from www.colorcases.com .

Ok the cobra has 1 side fan included, 2 rear and 4 front fans are optional. The green dragon only has 4 spaces for fans and costs a fair bit more. Looks like I'm leaning towards the cobra, unless I am persuaded otherwise.

No problem. If you can afford that $100 Antec (the P-160) I would recommend that. Its a great case for the money and has some nice looks for those that prefer the shineiness and lights and bells and whistles and all that.

BUT, that one has no PSU. SO might consider one of the other Antecs that do.
