Neither is my taste, but I'd have to go with the Thermaltake. It does look like a good sturdy case.

I prefer the looks of xion 2. Are they the only ones you can have?

I like the first one. It look more sturdy and looks like it has a lot of "easy" features to make installing and removal easier. I like the way it looks too compared to the second one.

The Thermaltake is the more solid case...probably has better airflow too. But they both look fugly IMO.

A64 3500+ > X2 3800+ > E6300 > X4 640 > Phenom II N970 > G3220

6800GS > X1950pro > 8800GT > 460GTX > HD6470M > HD7700GHZ

Yeah... not my taste

but at least the Thermaltake looks tacky in a more classy way... the other one just looks tacky...and flimsy.

Knowing Thermaltake, it is at least a decent quality case.
