This is what im looking for...

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for something simple, Something thats like a basic case that has a good front and I can cut apart...Paint...swap out the buttons...Fill with lights...something I can start from a point of looking like stock...then personalize it like theres no tomorrow...Any suggestions?

And of course...small budget is always better... (I want to start PC case moding)

How much are you willing to spend? Lian Li's are clean, simple, and elegant cases, that have loads of room - they just cost a lot. For a cheaper case, perhaps a CM 690, or the CM Centurion 5.

Well, you could always look around your local best buy for a Rocketfish tower. They're actually rebadged Lian-Li towers. A lot of people have been finding them from $49 to $75. They're a great case, you just have to be able to identify it in the store as a Lian-Li.

edit: im not sure if ALL rocketfish towers are lian-li. Probably they arent. But there are numerous threads around here about lian-li/rocketfish towers.

Just check this list out and see if you like something. But for a simple cheap case, you're probably looking at $40-$70 with shipping.

Edit: And 0rion's suggestion is good too.

These are Lian Li cases. But they are way out of your price range. That Rosewill you linked is a good case, BTW.
