any one know a good site too get a nice pc case from?
couple of sites spring to mind
they do some very nice and beautiful cases
but it does depend on how much you wish to spend
http://www.scan.co.uk/todayonly have them and some time have them on special offer.
As to http://www.kustompcs.co.uk my mate got a case from them that really chills it insides down so as to allow for massive overclocking, but it cost him about £400.
I bought one of those chieftech Scorpio cases that look quite nice and don't break the bank : plastic front but it looks quite nice. Quite good 5 1/4 " bay rack mounting system in it ( after I'd figured out how it worked) Bags of room inside nice and easy to work with : again detachable cages for the 3" drive bays. I went for black and I'd pick a different colour if I got it again: the black is a bit drab and a little greenish.
Probably not as good as the more expensive cases but good forthe money.
Aria have a Thermaltake case on offer for today only http://www.aria.co.uk/DealforToday.asp I do not know how it compares with other sites but try here http://www.computerprices.co.uk/hardware/pricebrowser.asp?categoryid=CASE for price comparisons.
I have spent about £100 on a case and I have now found out that you should really push the boat out when buying a case, £30.00 cases are not the way to go.
Coolmaster have released a new aluminium case:
Haven't found a retailer who stock it yet but looking at the above link, it's the dogs!
Seconded. A good quality case is likely to be your longer lasting component and will positively influence cooling efficiency and noise levels.
I got an ATC 200 from overclockers.co.uk over a year ago and i am still very happy with it as it is nice and light plus gives great ventilation.
The build quality is also very good from coolermaster
Just spent £250 on a new case, a coolermaster ACTS-110 with a side window
Previously i had bought cheap ones, but i thought it was time to spend more and get a decent alluminium case.
In reality you spend what you can afford, for £110 you can get the CM200 or 201 which are both excellent cases and far better quality in terms of build and materials than the majority of £50 cases
It is definitely true you get what you pay for and a decent case could last a large number of upgrades
Also, bear in mind, the majority of pricey cases come with no PSU, so add another £40-£100 depending on your power requirements
