I have 2 options for cases here....and this is a tough choice. Somebody else is buying me this case...I;ve been doing favour for them...hey, not like that. YOu know, fix their computer for free, pass them down some old ram and stuff...and they just got a new job and they felt they needed to pay me back. I didn't really accept at first but they insist. So, without breaking their bank account I have a budget of about 100 canadian.<br><br>
2 - <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/thermaltake-soprano-case-black-2.html" target="_blank">Thermaltake Soprano</a> - Favourite of many...im sure this'll take the cake...but the NZXT looks sicccccck. This one will also include this <a href="http://www.xoxide.com/casegears-black-steel-480w.html" target="_blank">Sunbeam Casegears PSU</a><br><br>
They dont ship the soprano to canada, so, find me someone who does under 100 canadian!!!

You might want to say to suggest the one that will provide the best airflow/ etc., because people have different taste.

Because I dont like the look of Lian Li, too plain, too much money for a plain case. Which has better airflow?

Because most good Lian-Li cases will be over budget.<br>
Does the soprano have a side fan? And does the nzxt have a front intake? If the nzxt has front intake then go for that one.

In retrospect, lol (had to say it), I really like the look of the soprano. Just wondering if the NZXT will provide better anything LOL...kinda like a pros' vs cons' of cases

I've never seen the cases in person, and pictures can never show me everything, so i guess listen to these guys.

<i><b>One or more of the items on this order cannot be shipped to your location.</b></i><br><br>
How convenient....NCIX sells them for 120 with the window, and Tigerdirect.ca is is the same. Now where does one go? The race is on to find a side windowed Soprano in canada, for under 100......gah good luck kopi

94$ plus S&H (10$) --> 104 plus tax landed.<br />

I bought it last week, there was a 15 dollar manufacturer rebate. Got mine for 79.99 :)<br />
