Howdy, as we're all aware we've crested that halfway point through 2010 and I'm fairly shocked to be having so much trouble finding USB 3.0 front ports on computer cases. Originally I planned on a mid tower case but now I'm wondering if a full tower is my only option. It's a shame, I was hoping my case would be one of the more affordable components I'd be purchasing for my new video/image editing and gaming rig, but I can't seem to find anything under $170. Is anyone aware of some affordable, quality (well ventilated) mid or (less preferably) full-tower cases that are usb 3.0 equipped?
I know what you mean about hoping that the case would be one of the more affordable pieces, I thought the same thing when I built my first computer. But you should really make sure you get a quality case.
If you go cheap with the case it can lead to a lot more pain in the big picture, namely heat and noise, but also the cheaper cases just don't last as long, and sometimes literally fall apart!
Here are a few that I found though:
HAF 942 (It's a full tower, probably way too much for what you want, goes at like $180) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
