    I'm wondering if people could recommend some cases with with windows and what your opinions are on the 4 cases I list below.

    I'm a superficial man and looks are almost everything, but its gotta have good airflow, a window and be bigger than a midtower.

    Price wise I'll go as high as £150 after shipping.

    So far some cases that have impressed me are:


    Lian-LI PC-P50R

    NXZT Lexa Blackline

    Raidmax Sagitta II

    [​IMG]

    Thermaltake VA8000 Armor Super Tower

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for any suggestions, recommendations or advice.

    Once I get the case I'll post pics of it here.

    I also love the Antec P182 Case, and looks especially pretty with a modded side window in fact.

    I was just at a computer store and got to take a close up look at the CM Sniper.. really neat looking case! Dunno if it comes with a window though but u could easily mod one in I'm sure.

    tj07 is super sexy especially when modded ..but it seems like u enjoy more of the flash vs clean/sleek

    when i first started building rigs i wanted the flash cuz no one had it and u had to actually mod the case to get it..but now clean/sleek is what i enjoy more..

    Always been a Lian Li fan, for my gaming rig, I chose Antec 1200. Solid design and extremely good cooling/low noise.

    here's some pics

    I used to think the plexi windows were a fad. apparantly its still popular, I'm suprised OEM's like Dell and HP havnt cashed in on that cream crop and gone that route on their typical computer case designs as little touches to their designs could make the final desicions for buyers. but then again they'd have to clean up their wiring and add some clean internal designs
    I used to like sony's vaio cases but now their kinda lame lookn

    Companies like dell and hp don't do it because their 250w psu with VIA chipset tan/brown colored motherboards and wimpy video cards aren't exactly clear case material...

    I have the Antec P182 case. Mine doesnt have the plexi window in it though, which I think is fail anyways. Its a good case. The airflow could be better, but it is super heavy. If I had to buy another case, I would get the thermaltake armor.

    I like the Cool Master HAF 932.....had a Antec before and a couple of others but this case may not be the best to start with but it has the best to offer for what ever you may want to do too a case at a fairt price point also......my 2 cents on the subject

    Themes and flashy graphics on electronics is pretty ftl. Lian Li lacks proper ventilation in most of their large cases. Even looking at their gaming cases, most do not have side and top fans, other than that quality is unmatched.

    if you can press your wallet ,..cooler master atcs 840 , silverstone tj-09 ,cosmos s.

    cost conscience .. haf 932 , antec 1200 , thermaltake xaser vi/armor + , gigabyte 3dmars/suma/aurora

    on a tight budget ,.. cooler master 690 , antec 900, thermaltake eureka

    on the cheap,.. , cooler master 590 and antec 300


    i would recommend not holding wether or not it has a window to the cause of a purchase though. it's not hard to add one to a case that is worth having if you have to have a window.

    you can even purchase optional side panels from some of these companies. some of the gigabyte full towers, like the 3dmars , comes with a plexi window, and a ventilated window out of the box for you to choose what you want to install in your side door.
