Lian-Li's are one of the best they are good, but if you want room get a server or full tower case.....make sure its alluminum or steel.... better cooling that way...

Well Budget play a part in this? Well, if your gonna build a really good system and oc it, you need a very good case. I'm not great at this stuff, but heres an ok one...

That case should have a nice airflow, and easy opening and lots of space too.

I guess, but stuff has happened before where they say its new, stuff it in some box, and the case is scratched. If you REALLY trust the buyer, i guess, but you can get very decent cases off of newegg for about the same price as ebay.

Well honestly you need a budget and a purpose.

If you plan on moving your computer around alot, lans and whatnot, lian li is excellent as it is all aluminum. Frozencpu.com even offers some modded Lians for a price...

If your comp is going to be sitting in one spot, and you plan on overclocking get pretty much anything made of steel with a Side Port over the CPU. This will drop temps by LOADS and will only requre a decent heatsink fan (use a fan controller) and your comp can be near silent.

The rosewill listed in my specs is excellent in cooling, honestly best 50$ish ever spent on my comp. I have 1 exhaust fan , and a heatsink fan,...and thats it and my temps are low.

So spend according to taste, budget, and purpose.
