£65:



Antec PlusView 1000 AMG

DECENT.


If you want to wait a couple of days I'll have one rigged up for a client and take some pics.

Chieftec Dragon/Matrix series cases are pretty sweet too (have a look at overclock.co.uk and komplett.co.uk).

yeah im gonna be waiting a while yet since i only have about £40 and ill probably waste that on booze on new years eve
ive looked on most sites and those are the ones ive found
ive seen the dx-01 for £61 which seems good.
also whats the difference between that and the cheaper tx-01?

Don't forget that's £61 plus P&P. Komplett want £20 to ship those cases because they are so heavy. Overclock.co.uk are cheaper but still - the overall price is more like £70.

i got £61 at overclock
though i may go to scan so i can pick i up and save money on shipping

though id rather have a window for the cold cathode someone gave me and cant afford an extra £20ish to buy a side with a window

Did you check out that Antec I linked?

It's £65 and comes pre-modded with the window and two low noise case fans already installed.

it seems to be a replica of the globalwin gat-001 but about £70 less. and made by "gobal-fin" :D
exact replica though except without a psu.
i saw it at aria
some where on the second page of cases.
some very nice ones on there

that antec one sounds very promising then cheers

ok youve been great but i got one last question

ive narrowed it down to

antec plusview 1000amg

chieftec dx-01 green

thermaltake xaser2 (slightly more expensive)

they all come to roughly the same when shipping etc comes into it, also do you know where else i could find the thermaltake? i could only find it atscan and wanted some comparison

Yeah - looks like great value for money! Not sure what the situation is regarding stock though.

The Chieftec/Antec "Chenming" design really kicks-ass. Personally I'd get something based on that. The ATC-710 I have isn't much more.

i just liked the whole aspect of having 5 case fans with it saving me having to go out and buy some

Ah right - yeah I just read the feedback comments. :)

Pretty good - modding is half the fun though, mate. Get something ugly and turn it into a work of art. ;)

yeah ill do that when i get my student loan in a few years ;)

funny ive gone from almost buying the verre v770 for £40 to wanting a case twice as much.

luckily i found 2 cheacks for £30 ive not cashed yet.
it gets close


btw i reckon you could do with paining the front of your cdrom etc on your case :D

There is a really thick layer of black aluminium paint on them called "a door". ;)
