    Best Computer Case Site?

    I was wondering what sites people used to buy nice computer cases/modde @ reasonable prices. I prefer steel/alumin cases and wouldn't hurt if the cases had window mods and with plenty of fans cirrculation.

    Thanks

    Check out XPCases.com. I don't know about their power supplies but their cases look good. Good luck!

    Try Thermaltakes website. The XaserIII is aluminum, has a window, and comes with 7case fans w/ filters.

    Lian-Liís PC-70 or 71 is the nuts with a Perspex window. Pictures to follow of my new build I finished today.

    They are big though but I see this as a bonus.

    Otherwise Antec with PSU as one is a good buy.

    Those all acrylic or lexan cases are nice for show...stay away from them for pratical everyday use, though.

    Fingerprints, dust...scratches...and that's just while you're putting it together!!

    Not to mention a royal pain in the a@@ just to put any type of drive in it.

    Antec makes a nice case, and great PSU's to boot!!

    Another vote for NewEgg.

    Thanks for all the help....time to drool as I look around wishing I had them all..

    Thermaltakes cases...a bit too overdone in my option..I like more simple and sleek desgined cases.

    I agree about the acrylic cases...they are nice to look at but more for show if you as me then for an everyday use computer.
