Default Cheap gaming cases? (UK)

Hey everyone.

Does anyone know a place to get sweet gaming cases for fairly cheaply? I don't really want to have to pay over 50-60 for one.

I was looking into the case below, it seems rather nice but I cannot really find a decent place to get one from. I have tried looking around everywhere:


http://www.apevia.com/product.php?pid=64

Or the version down from that one which is cheaper, but is just as nice:


http://www.apevia.com/product.php?pid=150

Could anyone recommend any good places to get one from?

Thanks,
Jamie.

I have that Aspire X-plorer (Second pic), as does a friend of mine. Very nice cases.

Try, Microdirect, Ebuyer, and Overclockers UK.




I highly recommend those cases though..

Where abouts are you in the UK?

I have tried all those sites and I did find the second one on ebuyer: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/100822 But isnt the cheapest ever, especially when you have about 9 postage extra.

And I live in the West Midlands area, not that far from the Overclockers depot. actually. I have been there a number of times to buy some parts.

Thanks,
Jamie.

Don't go cheap, I bought a new aerocool case for about 120 (maybe 60 in GBP) works wonders. I have played obilivion at high settings for hours upon hours and my temps were like they were at idle on my old case.

Its not that I want a cheap case, but a decent case for a cheaper price

I have heard that the cooling in the X-plorer is meant to be excellent and it has a built in temperature LCD to keep an eye on it.

This is the case I have at the moment and it looks kinda tacky and the airflow isn't fantastic:
