Need suggestion on light weight computer case

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a computer case that is relatively small, light weight and preferably not overly expensive.

The reason I ask is the fact my folks would like me to build them a new computer, that's fine with me other then the fact I'll need to ship it to them full assembled and if I can keep the weight down then the cost to ship it to them will go down.

I've tried pitching having NCIX assemble the parts for the 40$ fee, walk them through installing Windows 7 and then remote connect in to set up their software after, but they'd rather I do it instead.

I'm also looking for it to preferably have 1 5.25" external bay and 1 3.25" external bay, however if that's uncommon 1 3.25" external bay is preferred (i've talked them down from internal dvd-rom drive that they never use anymore)

What kind of budget are we looking at ?

Lian Li cases are some of the lightest by far and have that more subdued style you parents might like. Mostly aluminum cases but none under 90 though.

More then likely 50-90$ for the case, unless it comes with its own 80plus power supply then potentially up to about 120$
