    I am definitely interested in a gaming case. But not for gaming! No -- I love how some of these are built with quiet in mind.

    I'm seriously torn between this one, the Rosewill cases that I've seen on NewEgg, and a Fractal "Quiet" case that has damping material right in the chassis. The only thing that bugs me about THAT is the weight. On the other hand, any good case is gonna weigh a fair amount.

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm looking long and hard at lots of different case options, but the gaming case is the best-in-class for a variety of reasons. Mostly, they are generally designed for modularity, have nice fans, offer the correct cooling position for the PSU (bottom-mounted) and are often tool-less in design.

    I agree, sammy... Gaming cases do seem to get you great features, but do so at a price point that isn't as painful as some of the top-end enthusiast or designer cases. If I'm building a PC that doesn't have specific constraints (like size or serious budget limitations), I almost always go with a gaming case. The decent ones are built with heat flow in mind, noise reduction is often a priority, but (most importantly to me) they are built to be easy to service and upgrade. That modularity is a huge feature for me.
