Cooler Master

One of the Cosmos cases. One is Steel the more expensive one is Aluminum.

I love the Cosmos 1000. It's all I've been looking at recently. I don't want an Antec 1200 because I currently have a 900. But, I do want something black. Not a fan of the color scheme on the 1000. The 1100 is nice, but it doesn't include the nice extras the 1000 has.

This is probably your best bet:

If you're going to spend $200 on a case, get something high quality. Don't get steel (cough Antec), get aluminum. And all of Lian-Li's parts are top notch. I own the smaller PC-65B, and it's great.

Honestly, I've never been that fan of Lian Li cases. I don't think they're are that great looking. Most of their cases look like the shells of prebuilts.

If you've ever seen one in the flesh you'll realize why they have such a good reputation, though.

You could always try the Antec 1200 too.

I personally have an antec 1200, and it is a great full tower. Plenty of room, great cable management, and good airflow.

However, I have also heard good things about the Lian Li's, but the antec 1200 looks sick.

My current case is the Antec 900. I just want something to mix it up a bit. Luckily I found an extra monitor lying upstairs. It's only 12", but I only wanted one to be able to chat on AIM and stuff while gaming. I would like to add another hard drive and Core 216. The Antec 900 is beginning to fill up already, haha.

See, I love more of a polished look. Like the Antec 900 looks amazing to me. It's elegant and yet seems to say powerhouse at the same time. The 1200 looks a bit clunky. I'm just going for the Cosmos S in black and gunmetal. Then I'll purchase another Core 216 in a few weeks.
