kinda depends in my opinion. If your going to have a few people looking at it than yes its worth the extra $50, but if not than possibly not. If your computers running sometimes at night like mine (running virus, defragmenting and other things) than no. My computers are all in one room and my main computer is in my bedroom and not many people go in there so I didn’t bother with lights.

$50 on lights harley? jesus man, how many lights are you talking about. LED's are cheap as hell...cold cathodes are like $7 for the most part...but $50 in lights would be a ridiculous amount.

my computer isn't in my room so I don't even worry about that stuff regardless.

I'm gonna say no. It's a fad... it might last a while even, but what's the point? It's a PC. you don't have anything to prove about your manhood with some neons in that case. It's going to please you just as much when you're playing a game or surfing the net without lights. I wouldn't waste a few hours of work for some stupid lights.

i think the same way. but most new ATX cases have clear sides and stuff is that just for the lights or dose it pose some other benifits that i have overlooked?
