im just wondering wat is the best case. IMO i think the alienware case is a great case. It has style, great potential for cooling, although it has no side window it does have protection for your valuble parts. What do you all think.
I have a silver Raidmax Scorpio 868W and I love it. It fits me and was a bargain ($57USD total including shipping from newegg.com!)
There are some case brands that use better construction (no sharp edges, sturdier metal, etc.) There are some case companies that make fancy premodded cases. There are your basic beige mid tower cases too.
Pick one that you can stand to look at, has some room for your parts, and you can afford to buy!
The old style Alienware case is a Chieftec, the same model chassis as the Antec 1080 uses, but with a slightly different front panel.

I have the new style alienware case and it's awesome. Definately one of the best cases ive seen. But as of now my new computer sits in a somewhat cheap antec super lanboy case. I needed it for the 2 120mm fans which don't really do [-peep-] and for the light weight for carrying it around.
Yes, that will most likely my choice of case will be Lian when i decide to build again. But that wont be till next form factor.
I do however keep wanting to throw this in my alienware case, just so sad becuase i can't transport it around near as easy. I only have a two seater truck so not much room for a full tower case that is a bit bigger than normal tower cases.
