How much are you looking to spend on a case?

Notice the power supply falling out because the clamp this case uses to hold it in is too far out because the PSU is too small. Then you've got a hacked molex 5V and ground going to a keyboard encoder at the bottom, missing an optical drive, a 4k-something RPM hard drive with a whopping 4 gigs/8 because it isn't formatted correctly, and overall crappy components in general.
and lots of dust

Was 10x worse before I cleaned it. True story.

I found it outside sans hard drive and PSU, btw.

I really don't know. Trying to keep it pretty low, I don't need anything fancy just functional. Might go to the local PC Store and see if they have something...but my car's out of commission.

Here's one for a decent price: Rosewill R222-P-BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower. $24.99 with only $9.99 for shipping. It has plenty of room and comes with a 120mm fan.

Well, I was burning through PSUs so fast because of my old setup that I took them off for cooling, then...I lost them. That looks like a good case Atomic Rooster, I might get it.

Lol, My system sorta fits that description. On the outside, it looks like a crappy eMachines, but open it up and BAM!! HD3870, 4 Gigs of RAM, 650W PSU, and an awesome sound card..

BTW, Dot Cong, if you do get a new case, get some better/bigger fans to go with it to prevent burning out anymore PSUs...
