    Hi all. I need to know of a good case to buy for my computer. Its a $1500 build so it will have pretty much the basics...1 hdd 1 gfx card, ect...so I don't think I'll have tough time squeezing my hardware into comps. I have looked at some cases and my favorites so far are:
    -Thermaltake Tsunami $115
    -Thermaltake Armor Jr. $125-ish

    Brand is not something I care about. Quality, convenience, etc. are what I care about. And please anything <130 is alright with me. Thank You!

    EDIT:: I don't need a desktop or anything. Just towers, preferrably MID-SIZED.

    not all too sure don't knwo a ton about it, a week ago zzf had the stacker for 120 with shipping included

    if you feal you can justify the cost, Lian Li V1200 is a great case. somewhat of a premium, but an excellent case.

    out fo curiosity though, what do you mean only 1500? that include a monitor. if it doesn't your kinda spoiled/crazy

    You are lucky.

    Look for something like so --

    E'6400 core 2 duo
    gigabyte ds3 (or ds4)
    corsair xms 2x1gb (or other ddr2-800, low-volt ram(1.9v))
    x1900xt, or go cheap (like 6600gt, x850xt, x800gt, etc; then get g80 or r600 later)
    whichever size you get, get seagate barracuda with prm tech
    nec cd/dvd r-rw
    some one else can help you on a psu

    if you need a monitor, look for like ViewSonic or Acer. Probably max 6ms, 2ms-4ms would be great.

    Well...technically i have to use $400 of my own pocket money for the $1500...but yea. I think I'll go with the Armor Series of Thermaltake. Anyone know any good deals for these? They're kinda expensive..I think I saw a Jr. for $105~ but Idk if theres like an uber high shipping cost, etc (like strings attached) Thanks

    there arent really "Strings" attached with newegg. Just like a flat $15 shipping for a case.

    there might be taxes depending on where you live.

    here is my advice, with cases it is a lot up to personal preference. I personally don't knwo a ton about the TT armor jr, but i do knwo it's older brother is pretty good. what you want to do is a make a list of several components you like, then look for deals.
