Question Favorite Case

Hey guys. New to the forums and wanted to know what ya'lls favorite cases are. I'm looking for a good case that is under $150 that I will use when AM2 comes out. I've been looking at these two cases:

I also need a case with pretty good cooling. Thanks for your posts!

i would have to say the ASPIRE case is better, because the other case is noisy.

Also it looks pretty nice!

I like the Aspire too, great looking case. But $154? Plus, it comes with a PSU, which is probably going to suck, so you'll need to get a good aftermarket PSU.

I will recommend that over the Lian Li though. Here's another case you might want to look at. I have it and it's great.

Nothing beats an Antec case.

That Antec case is beautiful! However, does it run hot? I really like it. Also, does it scratch easily? Looks like it would.

Only problem that I have with that case is that the inside looks like it is really hard to wire things.

The PSU on the Aspire X-Navigator is actually pretty good, or so I've heard.

Ok, to throw a shoe into this thread, could you guys name me a good case that could be under 100? I just now remember that I have to come up with some money if I want to get the new PPU's that are coming out...

That Antec case doesn't run hot. It has great stock air cooling.

Hmmmm... and about the wiring. Seems hard with all the "organizers" in the way.

You take all those boxes out. They just ship it like that.

Ahhh I see. I'll have to look into that case... Also, one more question... about the scratching. If any of you have it, or have seen it (or have heard anything about it) does it scratch? I bet it does... if it doesn't I will most likely get this case! It's very nice!
