When I first saw the picture of the case I hated the look, but after I saw it in person. It looks much much better.

And he said "gaming" case, which I assume implies he'll be carrying it to LANs and such rather frequently. I don't know about you, but I certainly wouldn't want to carry an Armor to a LAN...<br />
<br />
Of course, assuming you want to be a "true" gamer, I would say save up and get this... it'll improve your game immensely...<br />

I'd personally go with <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811133021" target="_blank">Thermaltake Armor Series VA8003BWS</a> , I really like the look of that case <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> or this <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811133132" target="_blank">Thermaltake Tsunami VA3000BWA Black</a> , the all silver one looks sweet too <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

i have/love the black. but if you want to LAN, get the silver, it's lighter (aluminum instead of steel, this case is HEAVY.)

I'm looking at either the <a href="http://www.ultraproducts.com/product_details.php?cPath=13&pPath=411&productID=411" target="_blank">ULTRA Aluminus</a> or the <a href="http://techreport.com/reviews/2005q1/silverstone-tj06/index.x?pg=1" target="_blank">Silverstone Temjin TJ06</a>. I like them both because they're sleek and reasonably simple, but well built and functional. I don't like lights bells and whistles, I like practicality. Both of these cases have been very highly reviewed and fall into your price range. I can't wait to own either one of them.

The Ultra is the case I would switch to if I switched cases, mainly because my dream case (The new-style Stacker) is $250+<br />
<br />
The Ultra has a slideout mobo tray, reversible HDD mounts, sleek design, 2 120mm fan mounts, pretty much everything you could ask for in an awesome case.

Don't get a P180 if you're gonna be travelling with it. It's ... heavy... very... heavy... it's as heavy or heavier(with nothing in it) than my current computer (with everything in it).

If you have a microcenter near by the Ultras are ultra-cheap. They have the mid-tower for like $4.99 (after rebates $40ish) and the full for $40 (same rebate).

Well then, if it's not traveling, what makes it a "gaming case"? Otherwise, it's just a case, in which case (man I'm saying case a lot) I would say either an Armor or, if you don't feel like getting the same thing as everyone else...<br />
