    can't decide which out of the 2 cases to purchase

    Hi,

    I've found a good place to purchase cases at a low price that include almost everything. I've found two cases and can't decide which one is better, the prices for the both cases are the same.

    case #1: http://www.xpcases.com/shop/item.asp?CatID=1&Sku=118

    case #2: http://www.xpcases.com/shop/item.asp?CatID=14&Sku=129

    so, which one should I buy?

    thanks

    For some reason case #1 looks better to me. Yeah, I would pick #1.

    LOL. I would pick case #2. Black looks better but that button assembly looks weird on case #2.

    I would choose case No.1. More holes for cooling fan...

    Suggest that you take a look at these cases. They're cool and if you can find it in US, go buy it..

    Case #2 is my preference. Looks cooler, has more internal drive bays, and allows for more fans, though with all of the fan locations being used, your computer will probably suck all the air out of the room!

    For aesthetics only,
    I vote for chassis no. 1.

    I vote for #2. It has a digital temperature readout built into the front and more fan ports. But the screw holder on case #1 is a nice feature too.

    thanks for the help everyone but I'm going to buy the number 1 case. My abit board only support 2 case fans and I like the Aluminum-Silver color, looks clean.
