I would go with the xion-2.It is a well built case and provides very good airflow for my system and you might save some money.

Go with the Aspire.

I don't know much about the Xion, but Aspire cases are very well done.

You can find this case in several colors and in steel for around $50. The one in the link is the aluminum version and sells for around $70. Very nice case, holders for 5 fans (2 front intake,1 side intake,2 rear exhaust), removeable hard drive cage, removeable 3.5" cage, screwless 5 1/4" drive bays.

Go to Directron.com. They have the same case for cheap. From the looks of it Chieftec Matrix is cheaper than the Dragon. Both cases, however, are very easily moddable

Coming and Going.
