    what would you pick post it here!!!

    I'm trying to get some ideas of what cases I like but there are so many out there I can't decide.

    Also I'm not a huge fan of Lian-li.

    I'd just get an Antec one. Any Antec one. Even their cheap ones are good quality and I don't care all that much about looks when it comes to my computer.

    Yeah I'm kind of drifting towards Antec. I need one without a power supply.

    if you want an antec w/o a psu (good choice, I'm not a fan of the antec psus, anyway) then look at the P160.

    I just got an antec PS from best buy. I was in a pinch and paid way to much but its got good amps on the 12v rail so I can't really complain.

    I have a full tower Antec. Very solid (and heavy) lots of space for 80mm fans, and no vibrations.

    i have the antec super lanboy
    its a pretty nice case
    only things i have found with it is it isnt very stable, if i put it on a flat surface it still kind of rattles around on its rubber feet it wont ever get really rock solid on the ground
    also the front door just seems kind of cheaply made
    i dont like to mess with it because im afraid it will break
    its very well laid out though i think the best thing about it is the hard drive trays
    i dont know if every case has this but my toshiba i had before this one sure didnt
    there are little snap in trays for the internal drives that you can take out and screw the hard drives on to, and then you just snap that back in
    pretty cool
    it was really easy to set everything up inside the inside is very well designed

    I'm trying to keep to about a Mid Tower. Everybody seems to like Antec for price to quality match.
