I'm thinking about getting this silver nikao case with a side window and i was wondering if it mattered which neon light kit i got. Should i just buy any neon light kit? Heres a link to one that i found for $9:

sorry if the pic is small(Warning! may need to use a magnifying glass), i didnt know how to shrink it so that it would be atleat 300 x 300. :D

Update

Heres a link for better pics of the case. Tell what you think:

Those lights are sound activated, which means they pulse to sound waves. Also, at that price they may not be that good of quality, they dont LOOK that great. I would recommend going to www.heatsinkfactory.com and getting a CCFL for $15. Not much more money.

a cold cathode should last almost forever, so dont worry about that. Also, they are much brighter than neons.

If you think you may ever want to add another bulb then yah, the duel inverter is nice. They are almost the same price right? As for where to mount it, i personally like to put it somewhere so that you cant see the bulb, just the glow from it, i think thats what most people do. I have mine at the back of my drive cage. The back corner of the case works well too. Or along the bottom.
