Hey all,

I started the topic about how there were to many Antec style cases. Well I though of this and it so true its sad..also I like both of these items.

How are they the same?
1. They look good.
2. Roomy
3. Easy to mod or deck out
4. Cheap
5. Everyone has one!

Well I wanted to get that out of my system.

1. Antecs look nice, Civics...no
2. You're not over 6 feet tall are you, the Antec is roomy though
3. Antec yes, Civic no, cause it cost so freak'n much for stupid parts that don't do jack
4. Last I checked...both are negative
5. Only cause they are popular

oh yeah, most Antecs have more horsepower and torque than any Honda Civic.

Very True! Now all you have to do is find another good case/platform to work on. Lian Li is still one of the best cases available for people who don't mind spending for quality.

Exatcly why I use the Lite-On FS020, no one uses them and they are the best cases I have ever owned, the BEST for water cooling.

Yup, i've been debating getting a new antec case or something, but then i look at my cheap (30 bucks with crappy psu), generic, modded mid tower and start thinking 'i dont need a new case' this one works fine, holds all my stuff, ect. Its kinda crampt, but it does the job just fine.

Yeah, my old case was a cheap $40 case.

But it was too small, so I looked around what my options were locally. The Antec was the best and cheapest case in the size I needed. And it looked plain. I didn't want anything fancy. Just a plain jane beige case.

Which of course, according to this thread...I'm running a stock looking Honda with a mad modded motor. Which means I'm not normal in today's car society where the "kids" are running extravagent looking Hondas with crappy stock motors.

see, the thing is, rarely do you see someone tint their own windows, or make their own clear taillights. They buy those crappy body kits and pay someone to install them.

My theory, get whatever you want, and if you want to mod it, do it your damn self. If you know what your doing, you can make just as nice a looking and just as fast a car out of an old buick than you could with a 3 year old honda civic.

meaning, dont spend $500 for a completely customized case. Spend $50 on it, and do all of the customization yourself. Besides, its funner.
