Can anyone recommend a mid-ATX or full tower like the Thermal-take Level 10 GT? I'm looking for a case that differs from a standard (boring) rectangle. I use the Level 10 GT as an example because it stands out from the typical tower you'd find from HP, Acer, etc.
I'm not looking for unique so much as a case which is aesthetically set apart from store-bought machines, and the run-of-the-mill boring gaming rig.
I'm moving my current OC i7, Radeon HD 5770 build into it. Budget is about 250CAD
How about building your own case? Buy a cheap steel case, something like the Cooler Master Elite series cases, and start welding/cutting/modding your way to happiness. It's much more satisfying than a bought case and it will certainly be unique. Elite 370 seems a great choice, it's cheap enough to cut up and has enough additional fan spots for you to make it larger/smaller and still maintain decent ventilation.
I was never one for over the top, and the Thermaltake is a gigantic expensive piece of junk. A nice refined case like the 650/700/800D from Corsair or something with a bit of a twist like the Silverstone FT02 are elegant and very nice case solutions.
