I am building a pc to be a server in my house that will run all the time. There are hundreds of cases to choose from. I like the Antec Plus 1080 and have found it for $119 shipped from TechSavings.com. Are there any faults with this case. I like a bigger case because it is easier to work with. Would like some other ideas on cases people have used and the $120 is the max I would like to pay shipped. This will be a PIII system with asus TUSL2-C MB. Thanks Steve

That case is very popular, actually too popular IMHO; its a very good design. For this price, I can't think of anything that would beat it, and Im sure you'd have enough space for a standard ATX mobo.

Went back to try and order it but they were out of stock. What would be a good second choice?. I hate when I snooze on something and miss out. Comp USA has it for $159. Steve

I was able to get it from KDC for about $20 more. The reviews on the company that had it cheaper were not all that strong anyway. My friend is helping set this up but will be running software raid 1 for mirroring in case somthing happens to the first drive. Steve
