I hope this is in the appropiate forum, but nevertheless.
I am attempting to build my first system, recently I purchase (online) a computer case. As I was taken it out of the box, it dropped, face down, and broke. To make a long story short, as the front was plastic, would it be possible to purchase it seperately, or will I have to start from scratch and buy a new case. Could anyone refer me to a vendor? I would be eternaly gratefull

Whats the case some you might be able o fet some you might not, you may be able to for example get an old case thats the same from ebay and stick the front on it, and some companies will sell new fronts but ti depends on the company and the case.

did you buy the case from somewhere like tiger direct? it's probably under warranty...as long as you didn't get it second hand

Well there is no standard for case fronts past the motherboards tray and PSU mount there isnt any actuall standard for the case exterior and how they are mounted so unless you make something yourself then its gonna have to be the same thing again in order for it to fit.

Superglue works wonders if you dont mind a few scars. A lot of times the local computer shops have a few case fronts they save from disassembled puters laying around. I have dozens around here because i am too lazy to pull the switches and lights from them. I just stack them in a corner umtil i need a part.
