    looking for a cool atx case

    I'm building a machine at work - PIII450. We just got a G4 yesterday, and it's real cool in a plasticky way, so I'd like this homebuilt one to at least look a little cool, too.

    I went to Micro Center here in Chicago, and their selection of mid-tower boxes included a couple of pretty cheesy looking plastic models.

    There are some boxes from Futurecom on Ubid that go for about $70 and look sharp, but has anybody here used one?

    Anyways, any recommendations on a quality groovy case?

    Thanks

    Dennis

    There are pretty funky looking cases at http://www.colorcases.com but I don't think they're very nice. They may look interesting but the case's ventilation might not be all that great?

    Also look into Elan Vital Cases... I think they're the best looking cases available today, not to mention that they are very very very well ventilated!

    http://www.elanvital.com.tw This site is a little slow!

    Check out Antec computer cases. They have a new one that is blue and white that I think looks pretty cool. But the part I like about it is they advertise a special "case duct cooling system". I don't know what it means but it might be worth a look.
