LAN BOX Chassis

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
With the help of all of you I was able to build my gorgeous gaming desktop system - hugs and kisses for everyone.

Now I need help (only 5 months later) in building a great LAN party system. I have been looking at chassis. I want something small with a handle - not a normal desktop system. I'm a girl and am not particularly into hauling loads of equipment. So a mini-system is ideal for me.

Start at the Chassis I always say - does anyone have a great suggestion from personal usage?

Right now Fry's has a pretty good deal on an Ultra Lanbox, complete with a handle. I'm thinking of nabbing one right now. If you're near a Fry's store I think they've got a rebate on it too.

However, this tiny little tower is effing AMAZING. I want one for all of my folders.

What about something like a Shuttle XPC? They have a really nice one for $390 that has room for a pair of hard drives, an optical drive, and a floppy. It's also Core 2 Duo compatible and has a 400W PSU. They also sell carrying totes. Also $320 for an AM2 version.

I am almost positive it can fit a standard sized PSU but not an extended length one.
