Torn between these cases...

So I'm looking to build my first computer. I want a reasonably small case (matx, atx) that looks damn fine and will last me a long ways down the road.

I've narrowed it down to these cases and I really can't decide between them.....Based purely on LOOKS (ignore features/performance, they all provide enough for my needs) which do you prefer? True, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but they are all so beautiful to me D:

Fractal Design Define Mini:

Nzxt Phantom 410:

This last one holds less appeal to me when compared with these others, but it still looks very nice, and its a bit cheaper, too. So I'm sticking it up here just to see if anyone prefers it.

  1. the Define Mini is only for MATX boards. id suggest a R4 if you are using a atx motherboard.

    and yeah. id get a R4.

    Well I am getting a micro atx board. I also really like the more compact size of the define mini. The only reason I didn't put up an arc mini is because I honestly didn't think it looked as nice as its larger version.

    But yeah, I really only need a matx case.
  3. Purely on looks, the arc midi. Simple but with style.

    If I was being offered one of those for free though, I'd be taking the define mini. I hate computer noise.

    Check out http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163182 though
    and here is a review for the case http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buPdEMRZx10
  4. if you are gaming on a matx board (my recommendation would be the g1 sniper m3 since its 149.99 which is decent for what features are found on it), the define mini should be good to go

    Ooo I do like that one.....not a big fan of the usb ports and whatnot sitting right on the front though. Do you prefer it to the define mini?
