    kinda newb to the whole build your own pc thing and i figure i need to start with the case so everything can fit. But any ways is this place reliable for buying cases?

    No. Get one from Newegg.com.

    While I love Newegg, is Xoxide that bad?

    Good bloody hell they got some ugly stuff.

    Check out that dump truck case. http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/yhst-39083765508394_2099_6647770

    But I can't find any reason not to patronize them. A quick search on the web seems to turn up happy customers. They have a tag on there website claiming 10 years of business.

    You want a tip?

    The most overlooked piece of the build is the power supply. A good quality power supply will pay dividends over the life of the computer. A cheap power supply will give you nothing but headaches and random problems.

    Your case will probably come with a power supply. This is not the power supply you want.

    ^^^ What he said.

    Regarding Xoxide specifically, I bought three Silverstone cases from them and they all looked like they were put together from spare parts. Even the boxes were damaged. Fuck that noise, back to Newegg I went. I can get a case from them that costs half as much and looks a lot better.

    Word, I hate eating the cost of buying the case and PSU separately, but they're generally a lot more reliable.
