I like thermaltakes coz of their showy looks... but I would love a Lian-Li, especially the holey silver one with wheelsi.. but i just can justify the price

I'm looking to buying a Sonata case from Antec.

I like a lot of different cases, but a lot of them on the market just look gaudy and juvenile.

I have one... Its awesome... it was so easy to put everything in, it has a great layout... it looks really nice and elegant and it is the quietest case I have ever owned!

So I dont think you will be disapointed!

I really like the antec cases, as they are nice simple metal cases which are not over the top with curves. It was very easy to get everything in, and it is very quiet too.

The Antec P160 is my next purchase, I hate tons of lights and extra plastic. Lian-Li is very professoinal also.
