Treasures or Trash? 5 PC Cases for Gamers

The Devil Is In The Details

A playful and conspicuous design is a matter of personal taste.

Case vendors always seek to attract younger buyers with extravagant form factors and outrageous looks. There are, for example, cases geared for gamers that evoke Spiderman or Batman, ready to make themselves at home in a kid's room or a teenager's lair. We look in detail at what five gaming cases, mostly from Asia, offerin in the way of modding fantasy and good 'ole fashioned quality.

However, gaming cases of this kind often lose something from the moment of their conception until when they reach retail channels. Another downside is that, because of cost considerations, many vendors choose to build with plastic, which is a lot more fragile than metal.

    I have owned this case previously until a guest "borrowed" (???!!!!) my computer for a few days and I loved it. I had a black one ane my son has the red one. They are absolutely beautiful and although I do not know very much about computer cases I can say that personally neither my son nor I received our cases in anything but a pristine condition. My children gave me this case after my first stroke and I used it and it's components for over 3 years. I play everquest, everquest2,WoW and had over 150 games from GameHouse and BigFishGames on it and it ran perfectly. In my humble opinion, I think it is worth every cent plus more. Not to be argumentative at all, just voicing my opinion 8)
