I have seen loads of pictures on the back pages of magazines of uber-cool computers with really good looking cases.

I am looking to build a good spec Gaming machine, but all the cases I look at are either outrageously expensive or get really bad reviews. :tazz:

Could anyone please reccomend a good case for less than £80 (inc. VAT).

Though it must have a lot of Fan mounts (3 and over), and I think the ones with the side windows look really cool but that is not as important as good airflow.

Cheers, Tenbroya

overclockers always keeps the best cases in supply although they also tend to be the most expensive cases i like the akasa eclipse case great features was almost going to buy one but i just couldnt part with that much money for a case. Mind you im very happy with my lanboy 52 pounds from amazon and arrived next day with free delivery.

You could always have just drilled a fan mount in the side or top of the case.

Thanks a bunch guys :tazz:. I have ended up choosing the Enermax CS-527 from http://www.xcase.co.uk.

This is partly cos its so cheap, but mainly cos my best friend has one and it looks way cool. Especially with the pre-fitted CC tube and LED fan.

Thanks again for your help everyone, it is well appreciated.

Pre fitted cold cathodes now thats cheating you, takes half the fun out the job if you get a fully premod case. I admit i slightly cheated as mine came with the window but i wasnt going to try and cut through a steal or aluminium case.

My next job is an 80 mm fan mounted onto the window to keep gfx and pci cards cool and m,aybe another 120mm on the top and a pair of blue cold cathodes inside and a led or cold cathode to replace the rear 120, maybe some kind of alteration to the door on the front as well. It takes away half the fun if you buy a pre mod. I always thought the enermax ones looked kind of tacky from the front with the gloss finish but i suppose thats easy changed if you dont like it.
