To me that last one is out and it's up to you about the other two because they are close to being the same but it's up to looks.

yeah i'm kinda leaning towards the first one. I like the looks of the 2nd one the most the LEDs are really bright from what i've heard and the 1st one has one more 3.5 internal slot. Both 1 and 2 have good reviews. i just dont know!!!

I'm leaning towards the second one cause it has more of a clean look to it.

i dunno i just read that the 2nd one has a removeable mobo tray so that may swing my vote a little. Are removable trays really that much better or does it really matter?

yeah basically the 2nd one has me on the looks but the third one has me on all else (good reviews, screwless, etc.)

I like case #1!! Well, from this list anyways. They are cheap, but can't beat a standalone case and power supply.
