    Hey, I recently just started building a computer for myself that I will use mainly for gaming, and I was wondering if any of you could recommend a good case for me? Id like there to be a transparent side panel if possible cuz I purchased alot of neon lights and glowing parts. I am on a budget here so if it could be under $150 CND... Thanks alot guys!

    If you need the specs on what I'm putting in it, here they are:

    AMD Athlon 64 3300+
    PC3DDR Kingston 1GB RAM
    ASUS AV8 Deluxe Mobo
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro

    Thanks again.

    can anyone recommend a good case for me? im not into the weird alien cases sweeping the market and im going to keep the case on the floor so accessible usb/firewire ports would be nice. i prefer a case without the side panel but doesn't matter as long as the case looks good. a psu with the case would be nice. something under $80.00. ive spent over 14 hours looking at cases from multiple websites but can't seem to find the right one. any help is greatly appreciated.

    that would be a pain to ship from U.K...and I couldnt find that case on any other sites, other than the compant site...but that aspire case is really nice too, if it is avalible in black/silver? Thanks for the links and replies guys, and since there would be no way I could get the case from the U.K, ill look into the Aspire one...although the price is fairly high (U.S too)-(im CAN), and then shipping...but I will definetly look into it!

    ya man, for sure ill show a pic when I got everything installed into the new case I get :) And yea tigerdirect.ca was the first site I looked for cases (my fav. site BTW) but its just to hard for me to decide which case is best for me, seeing as there are so many and most of them are really nice...

    P4- Thanks!! I shopped around for it and wanted a "pretty boy" case with lots of extra bays, large PSU, removeable mobo tray, see through (just like my wifes, xxx. DOH!) extra fans, LED's, thumb screws, locks, usb, firewire ports up front, temperature sensors for processor and HD's, etc. etc. If you're going to go for it. GO FOR IT! Otherwise, you're going to sit there and wish you had a new case. Man, there are some far out tricked out cases out there with some awesome paint jobs too. It's crazy. I'd rather choose buying a sports car rather than a case. DOH!
