Default Tough Decison

I am looking at cases and really tough on which case I want to go with. Here are my reqs

I want it to look good, I have a blue one now black would be nice

I want excellent air flow design a mobo tray would be ideal.

Those cares have been selected by me as possible csaes for my future PC.

Also take into note, PSU is not an issu eofr me, if I get a case with a PSU that PSU is going go from that case straight into my garbage can.

The cases

While I choose one for you, if has a PSU, give it to me. I'll pay shipping...if I can.

Seems that my PSU is hanging on it's last leg, I'm not sure.


UPDATE:
Here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147029

This seems to have 2 120mm fan holes, the interface seems easier than standard PC. It also includes a handle for top grip, so you can grab the bottom easier.

I would take it

Although, this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811209019

Seems to have more airflow options and look a bit more resistant than the rosewill.

It also includes a LCD display for temp reading.

Well in actuallity if I do get a PSU chances are it will be stored and used for testing pruposes. And tahts a very nice case. Howver along with this case I am also getting a new PSU, so I could always ship you my old one for like 20 bucks w/shipping.

If I can though.

hold on a minute. 20 buck+ shipping...does it equal to $35? I can get a 450W PSU for that much. So, I prefer also choosing economic way. That's the problem when you're stuck in the middle of nowhere

Err, I think I can get an image on how much Wattage it is. 300W or 350W lol.

Like you've said, I can get a better one.

Atomic Rooster's case is the famous Centurion. It comes with all the cooling, but, the only thing: There's nothing in it.

Coolermaster cases are some of my favorites, but Lian Li and MM still stands at the top. For good prices, Coolermaster and Antec are the way to go. But i can't gurantee a slideout motherboard tray. Even though it makes it a little easier, its not all to hard to get a motherboard into there. So yeah, I personally think that Antecs are better than coolermasters.
