I was looking to buy this case http://www.amazon.co.uk/CiT-Vantage-White-Computer-Inte...

Can anyone tell me if this is a well made case?

If not any suggestions for a similar price will be greatly appreciated.

Not familiar with uk vendors ...do you have http://www.newegg.com/ .. if so I would look there . As far as the case your looking at goes I've never heard of it before . Not to say its bad but that that there are many more choices out there . Not likely at the $ 35.00 mark . What are you using it for and what features are musts and whats the price range your comfortable with ... Reply to those and you'll have a gazillion choices in no time ..:)

It's okay, whats your budget? Also I would recommend a case with a bottom mount power supply.

The budget is quite small max £50/$80, not too bothered about looks but I don't want it to be plain. A few fans and good cooling for gaming. Needs to be ATX.

I can't think of many features, so any examples?

All these cases are much better than that rubbish you posted, so take your choice, like ive already told you, your not trolling i hope ?

No I'm not trolling and sorry I didn't realise I posted the same case just in a different colour,

As for http://www.scan.co.uk/products/antec-300-three-hundred-...(new-version)

Would the 2 fans keep all my components cool while gaming?

This is a bit of a noob question but will I be able to use my iPod and xperia play charging cable in the USB 3.0? Also how would I know what cables are 2.0 or 3.0?

Another thing about the Corsair it says 522mm x 285mm x 565mm (WxHxD mm) Is this just a typo and supposed to be 285 x 522 x 565?

2 fans will be good enough, but you can add more at a later date for better cooling.

USB3 will be fine for all your needs now and in the future as its compatible either way, so all your leads will work as will all your USB2 gadgets.

Yes its a typo.

Ok thanks for clearing that bit up.

On the corsair case in the Product Overview tab it says "This case does NOT include the USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Adaptor cable"

What does this mean?

The Corsair is too tall but I should be able to lower the bottom shelf and then move the top shelf up and leave about 2 1/2 CM would this be a bad idea?

Just moved a few things and now I should be able to leave about 6cm/just under 2 1/2 inches

That sounds good, and dont worry about the USB2 cable thingy.

So I would be better off getting the Corsair? as it has more fan spaces for the future and as it is quite a bit bigger there should be a lot more room.

Just looked at the measurements for the Corsair again and it's a little too big width wise and the only way I can fix this is to either move the left wall of the desk to the left which will result with me having to cut the 2 supporting beams at the back or I could just leave it out and have no leg room and the risk of kicking it all the time.

So the only option really is to go with the Antec which will fit perfectly or is there a better case that will fit for roughly the same price
