    It might have been nice to have had some pictures or URLs...

    I agree with Phant - need pics - don't be afraid - upload those pics!

    And some more info would be nice too...

    You same gamer, but what do you put in that word?
    Someone who stays at home playing, or one who goes to lanparties often?

    Do you plan to mod the case more after you get it? (I.e. add light's, use rounded cables etc.)

    Ok, sorry guys. First of all, I will not be going to any lan parties. I am sorry, but I don't know how to upload pictures. I also don't have any information on these cases. I don't know what brand of power supply these are either. Man, am I going to get it in the eye :blackeye: . See, I want to buy from this website www.cyberpowersystem.com . They have some good deals. And if you go to their website you can view some of the cases. I will not be using many drives with my new computer or anything, but I might want to in the future.

    This is what I want my new computer to be:

    AMD Athlon XP 1800

    Gigabyte 7VRX VIA KT333 mother board 4x agp w/usb 2.0 & audio

    256 MB PC333 PC2700 DDR Memory

    40 GB 7200 RPM ATA 133 Hard drive

    Geforce 3 Ti 200 64MB DDR

    56X CD-ROM

    120 Watt Stereo speakers

    PCI 56k V.90 FAX MODEM w/Voice

    Mitsumi 1.44 MB Floppy DR

    Windows XP Home Edition


    And the case is all that I need help on. What do you think?

    Ok...
    Reason I asked 'bout lanparties and modding was if you wanted a "bragging case"...

    As for which case... there wasn't too many pics on that page, so I can only judge from those I've seen...

    This was quite nice, though it doesn't say if it comes with a light or not... (If it doesn't, get one... otherwise that window just looks stupid..)

    The case design on this wasn't too bad either... I know it's not on your list, but perhaps it's the P4 ver. of a case listed above...

    Those were the only cases that caught my eye, and I think the first one's the best...


    But are you sure you want to spend that much dough on a case?

    .02$ from a guy who still only has beige cases... :)

    Beige cases rock! ;)
    I've never had anything other than Beige cases and they have never let me down. As long as they have enough fixtures for case fans and are easy enough for me to get into to tweak hardware (break it ;) ) I am happy.
    I generally have my PC under a desk to drown out the HSF.
    If I had it in my living room I would probably go with a Lian Li Aluminium case. I would discount any of the ones listed as server cases unless you plan on putting > 3 hard disks and an array of DVD, CD, CDR drives into your pc.
