I presume you are going on sheer looks? Because you won't get very good air flow in those cases.<br />
<br />
I prefer the bottom one.

You can buy something better with $90. But if you must to buy one of them ; the bottom one is better, i think.

I recommend my Thermaltake Soprano - I looks great and cools very well too <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
Mine was £45GBP about $80USD<br />

</div>Out of the two you have suggested, I would go for <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811138056" target="_blank">this</a> one. Mainly because, although the design does not appeal to me personally, it is consistent, all over the case. The other case you're considering has a beige/creme front panel; the contrasting juxtaposition of this against the rest of the case’s kitsch design, looks somewhat odd to me. It’s like a sensible middle-age accountant wearing a gaudily embroidered leather jacket, with a smart shirt and tie. <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811138056" target="_blank">This</a> case comes with an LCD monitor and although they are not hugely expensive, having it probably makes <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811138056" target="_blank">this</a> case better value for money.<br />
<br />
So, it's <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811138056" target="_blank">this</a> case, for consistency of design and value for money, imho <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> .<br />
<br />

Well first that is $94 after MIR.<br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119078" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119078</a><br />
This one includes a PSU if thats what you want.<br />
<br />

And this one does not.<br />
<br />
With the extra cash you will save I suggest getting some LED fans and cathodes to dress it up. These cases will provide MUCH better airflow then either of those two.<br />
<br />
Dynapower is not a company to trust...<br />

</div> i bought this case for my phase setup and it was my first lian li and i must admit prob the best built case ive gotten as far as standard cases go <br />
<br />
it has relatively good airflow but i got mine at crazypc and had them put a 120mm hole in the top for more air flow and a side window installed, it is very nice and very easy to dress up or paint or whatever <br />
<br />
out of the two you were looking at the first one with the lcd monitor definatly looks much better, actually looks like there was some effort put into making it all go together

Get the non psu version and spend it on this PSU instead. There is also a 450 version.<br><br>
