    www.jinco.com

    If you can get past the chinese accent (if you order by phone), they're a good company to buy from.

    pricewatch.com will have more cases than anybody.

    It's a good starting place to see what is available.

    Just be sure to check the vendors feedback before you buy.

    There's a lot of shady dealers on pricewatch.

    Most of the time I use pricewatch to get an idea of what I like then I buy it from newegg or ewiz

    Those links are to good quality cases.

    But pricewatch has over 150 case vendors, and if you have a lot of patience you can find some interesting stuff.

    I'm sure not all their cases look alike. Google is your friend.

    thanks guys, i ended up picking up this one
    [​IMG]
    http://www.gearxs.com/gearxs/product_info.php?cPath=88&products_id=4710
    38.99, free shipping.

    Now another question: decent priced parts. I'm building a pc for my friend(using the case i just replaced). Need to find a decent mobo/cpu (like p4 3ghz with at least 4 expandable ram slots and a agp video slot). DVD burner, ram, sound card and hard drive. I guess pricewatch would be the best to look?

    I got this Antec P180. Very cool case, almost a full tower, kind of heavy, but has room for 5 - 120mm, the PSU is seperate from the rest of the case. drives are mounted on rubber grommets to prevent vibrations, and the walls are dappened, kinda like dynomatted to help cut down on sound.
