Any Suggestions for a sub $120 case


I want to get a new case with 120mm fans, thinking of getting a Tsunami...any other suggestions?

How about $36.00?

120mm all around, inexpensive, and easy to work with. Its a Tsunami w/o the ugly stuff but its steel. Then you get to mod it which is the best part.
Pics of mine that I modded...nothin better than a unique PC.

hmmmmm ill think about that? but did i mention I'm a lazy bum? so that might impede the modding area of it all, i'd like to have a window and i have a bad feeling if i try to do it, all I'll end up with is a peice of steel with a hole in it and a lot of cursing

I'm personally going the cheapish route with an antec 3000b and mod it. It's basically a 3700bqe/amb w/o the power supply, with the fan grills of the sonata, and the hard drive oriented in the normal way so it doesn't impede airflow. Just came out I think less than a month ago.

Great case! Good value. I bet it cools better than the P-160 at half the price. I just don't think I'd like using a case with a door.
