So do you think windows are cool or just a gimick? I mean would you rather see the inside of your case with lights, or a clean looking case with external lights?
Depends on where you're gonna put it. I mean, I know people who spent like $200-300 on a fancy case with lots of lights and crap, and then found out they keep it under their desk or in a closet! Any machine I'm never going to look at on a regular basis, is NOT going to have money wasted on it putting in glass and lights and shyt.
This new case I bought has a clear side because it's gonna sit in view on a shelf next to my desk. I still don't know if I'm gonna put lighting in it, though. The PSU has lights, but that was just a "came with" not an intentional buy.
Maybe some nice rounded UV-lighted cables and a little UV paint inside? Hmm...Gonna hafta think about it for a bit.
