    it depends on what your going to put inside, anything by the following companies: Arctic cooling,Thermaltake, or the ever popular Lanboy case, ( you can find it at most outl;et computer stores, ( best buy, comp USA, )

    or online @ www.nanosys1.com browse their cases, great resource to find exactly what you want!

    I like the Thermaltake Tsunamis and Sopranos. I suggest going to NewEgg and checking out the ratings.

    Well the brand Lian Li has real nice cases that normally always get good reviews. Keep things very cool, but are a tad bit expensive.

    BTW- ChRoNo16 whats nano?

    Just bought a couple of Ultra Red Dragon cases at TigerDirect in a bundle with Ultra 500W Modular PS & two 80MM fans for $90 bucks each after rebate. Not saying it's the best, but damn nice mid tower - (4) 80mm snap in fan slots + one in case door, massive air intakes. Have one up and running with Intel 3.0HT (3) fans + door fan + two PS fans and quiet.

    You sure about that? Just checked their case prices and the thermaltake was $15 cheaper at newegg, and same with the AMD 3200 939.

    Thermaltake cases are nice, though more "upperscale" in price.

    I had a raidmax scorpio, and it serves me well.

    All cases bow before my Dremel and hole saws!

    MWAHAHAHA!!!!

    I always buy cheap cases and mod the heck outta them. A lot more fun, and I get the cooling and peripheral layout I want.

    First of all, I said check the ratings--not buy it there. Second of all, newegg's prices do not "suck". I find they are often among the cheapest on the Internet and their service is outstanding. I recently bought a heatsink from another source because it was considerably cheaper. Even though it was "in stock" I got an e-mail saying it was out of stock. I've been waiting for more than two weeks now! :rolleyes: With newegg, I would have had it in 3 days. Tiger Direct is also a very good. Most people here buy from NewEgg or TigerDirect.

    I love my Coolermaster Cavalier. I was hugely surprised in how large of a difference there was between it and my former case, it's absolutely silent where my old case was a moderate noise level, it cools better even with no more than the "stock" 2 fans (replacing them with my own fans only increased noise level and not cooling ability whatsoever) and it's just good lookin

    Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey...

    iirc the Antec Sonata was quite the case in terms of cooling and noise - with 2 120mm fans in it...
