Default Re: now ive got 100 dollars for a new case

I like some of the Lian Li's. I'm a big fan of flashy cases with side panels and a bunch of lights, though. If you're building a custom computer, why use a plain looking case? I know they do make some pretty cool ones. They are pretty expensive though.

I'll be honest, I don't like Thermaltake cases. They've been putting plastic all over their cases, and it looks like crap IMO. The older Armor is the only case I'd own from them.

It's a personal opinion thing. Some people like flashy, while others don't. One of the beauties of building a computer is being able to customize it to your desire.

Lian-Li cases are usually more expensive because they're usually made of mostly aluminum and have good build quality.

I've had this case for almost 3 years now and it is a beast, the airflow is great and it has a built in fan controller...
