My 6 year old Dell laptop recently died (God rest its soul) and I need a new PC. I keep kicking around the idea of home building an Intel i7-860 system. The thing that holds me back is the selection of cases. I can’t find a discreet looking, high quality, mATX case. It’s going to be all purpose machine used for little of everything. I’m not crazy about cube cases since they take up too much desktop space. I don’t need a large number of 5 ¼ or 3.5 bays since I can’t image have more than one cd drive and two hard drives. Graphics card wise I would probably go with a single ATI 5770. Any suggestions?

First, do you want a micro-atx tower style case or a horizontal micro-atx desktop?

Second, what is your budget for a new case?

Definitely a micro-atx tower style case. My budget is pretty open so I’ll say up to $150 for the case alone.

keep in mind that any case that comes iwith a no-name 250watt psu the psu is pretty much useless.
