Does anyone have any recommendations for an ATX case that has front mounted USB ports? Although I love the Coolermaster ATC200 series, I don't want to spend $300 for a case, let alone one where I have to supply the powersupply.
I know CompUSA (I prefer to call them ripoffUSA) has a HP-clone case with front USB, but I think that design is getting long-in-the-tooth, like the Dell/Palo Alto cases.

If you haven't found that case yet I can recommend the Blaster PC case. TigerDirect is selling them as a kit including a Creative Motherboard w/integrated SoundBlaster Live! and a built in FM tuner with remote control for about US$150. I built my newest computer with this case and it's one of the best cases I have used. It does have front panel connectors for the SB Live! and USB.

I found some nice looking cases with front USB & audio ports nicely concealed under a little flap at http://www.colorcases.com They have cheap to expensive models to choose from. Good Luck -Lonnie
