    I'm trying to find a new case, and I need a full tower (atleast 5 or 6 ext. bays). I'm not looking to spend a whole lot on it, as I dont care what it looks like.

    I do not need a p/s with it either.

    Does anyone know any good sites to check out? I've already checked what I assume to be the popular ones..... but figured someone might know some shit I don't.

    But if you can try to find a local shop to buy it from. Save the $15-20 shipping cost.

    It always helps to give as much detail as possible.

    In this case, what is the budget?

    I have been looking at the Silverstone and Antec cases.

    www.xoxide.com is a site I've ordered from in the past with good success.

    As cheap as possible is the budget.....

    Here are as many details as I think you would need....

    Looking for about 5 external bays (5.25) and a couple (optional though) 3.5 bays external.... and a shit ton of storage room inside.

    LIke I said, I do not need a p/s.... already have one with cables that are more than long enough

    Raidmax Samurai - $50 after rebate. Shipping is only $10
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811156154

    5 external 5.25 drive bays

    2 external 3,5 drive bays

    120mm fan in front of the drive cage - a must imo.

    120mm rear fan.

    It requires a rebate, but in the long run you would have a good case for pretty cheap.
