I'm looking to buy a new case for my computer, but I can't decide.

The XG Dragon looks pretty neat, but the Lian Li PC-65 also looks tight. Does anyone know about the quality of the materials, effectiveness of cooling, etc.? Right now I'm leaning towards the Lian Li.

I was looking at pretty much the same cases and ended up getting the Lian-li. The materials are top quality and the finish is harder than one would think, it's hard to scratch. I have also found that aluminum is much better at removing heat than metal and plastic. Plus the Lian-li is much lighter and easier to carry to lan parties and such.

I don't care about the lack of PSU either because I think that I'd go with the Silverstone Zeus 650 watt, which from what I've read is definitely on the high end of power supplies. Beyond that, the Lian Li has a very nice window compared to the XG Dragon. However, the XG has LED fans and the Lian Li (according to user reviews) doesn't have particularly good fans (and I want LED fans to light up the insides). I'm still considering both.

True about the fans in the Lian-li, but their easy to replace with lighted fans if you want.

That Thermaltake is ugly and the Silverstone has no window, which is a pity, because that is a hot case.

I'm also looking to upgrade the window in the Lian Li PC-65, but now I'm also looking at the Lian Li PC-75 (server case, looks pretty much the same as the PC-65 but larger). My question is would this window work with either of them?

Oh man, that Silverstone is just so hot though. If *only* it had a window.
