I was wandering what cases(manufactures and form factors) are good for modding?
Should I buy cheaper one and make it gold, or buy a quality case cause many other things come with quality(features and internal options)?
Anyway, my price range is 80-100euros max, like around 110$ I think...
I have some Thermaltake, Coolermaster, Antec, Chieftec, avaible to purchase...

I'd go for antec if you need a power supply with the case.

Imo, but a cheap case if your going to mod, that way if you screw up, its a $50 screw up instead of a $150 screw up.

I wouldnt really call that modding, as its mainly only real good cable management...

What do you expect to be doing to the case "modd" wise wolfy87?

If you are going any kind of painting, cutting gluing etc. i would take Smoked's advise and go cheap on the case cause that way if you stuff it, it aint that much wasted.

@ chookman
I`ll probably just improve airflow at first, an when I get bored by it I`ll paint, mod, LEDs, glow... :) 
Any suggestions on this? Is one intake and one exaust 120mm fan enough, or I need to try to isolate some areas, and bring fresh air in and hot out especialy for those components??? Like If I buy 8600GT Fatal1ty card, and isolate her heatsink with pipes or smth....
