Deciding on New Case

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm sick of my cheap old X-Dreamer II. It's the only thing besides my raptor that's still with me from my original build and I'm ready to be rid of it.

I'm staying under $200 for my budget - closer to 150 if possible. I want something that looks good but is not flashy. Cases with LED's and windows are out immediately. I'm partial to Lian-Li and was looking at the 6070B Plus II and the V600B.

Any suggestions/experience with either case?

Check out the Lian Li cases at Xoxide.com, they have some AWESOME deals.

The PC-V1000 is $209 at Newegg, it's $170 at Xoxide. . . and that's a KICK ASS case man.
