Whats a good case for $165 or under - Page 4

post #31 of 57
I just got my Antec 1200 in the mail today and I am very impressed with it. I highly recommend it. It looks very good in all back and the dust filters are a nice touch. Very roomy on the inside as well. So far it seems like a great case.

Where did you buy yours and for how much? I plan on buying one but the cheapest I've found them so far is about $185 shipped.

I'll add my vote for the 1200

1. It's Antec therefore built well
2. It's big enough to accomodate most anything
3. Supurb air cooling

If you don't mind the looks of it (the 900 became a love/hate case for many IMO) I think it's the way to go.

I paid $165 shipped from Amazon. The price went up a little over $10 since I ordered mine, but still not a bad price to pay at $175.

i have the Cosmos 1000 (not S) and i love it. I have never owned a better case. The cooling is very good too. If you ever plan on w/c it is a beast of a case. Check out CyberDruid's build for Flyinga2, just to give you an idea of the potential of that case.

Edit: I found it for $161.99 with free shipping after a mail in rebate with UPS, but the place didn't even have them in stock. I guess I'll just buy it from Buy.com but I'm having some second thoughts now. Is it really worth $175? I want to be absolutely sure I'm spending my money wisely on this case.
