    I am planning the build of my new rig, but I am having trouble with choosing the case.
    This case looks pretty badass, but do you guys think it's worth the 88.90?
    If not, can anybody tell me the name of a case that also looks cool, but maybe cheaper?

    They are cheaper, and in my opinion they look just as good, if not much better.

    Better case, from a trusted brand, in your budget, and less fugly.

    Yay, 800 toasts.

    I was thinking about that one too, but... It's not avaliable yet, and it will probably take them 1 or 2 months to get it.

    don't listen to the guys in this thread if you want people to know you're a REAL gamer you'll need to get the biggest case with the biggest fans and brightest LEDs blue's a good color but if you can try and get a bunch of different colored LEDs so people can tell you're serious

    It's in Portuguese. So logically people who don't speak Portuguese will find it annoying.
    Just like those German gaming websites I usually encounter.

    Really. NZXT cases aren't built sturdy, they're kinda flimsy. Like the Thermaltake V9. and most rosewill cases.

    Unless you're not moving around much, you don't need a sturdy case. But if you're not going to LAN parties, then you don't need a flashy case. It can get annoying sometimes.

    But if you like flashy lights that responds with BOOMS from the bass speaker, then w/e.

    I think you would be better off with the Antec P183. It has really good build quality, it is a large mid-tower case. It has great airflow and uses aluminum-foam-aluminum layers in the panels to keep it quiet. My friend has it, he loves it.

    how is this ugly? it's a sensible looking case.

    Edited:

    much better than the nzxt cases with their retarded hunks of plastic that jut out from every side of the case

    and the leds everywhere

    I'm not talking about the language. I am talking about the huge flash banner and the ads that move when you scroll.

    If you like LEDs a lot why not go with an all acrylic case then?
    Sunbeam makes quite a few and they aren't expensive, don't know if they sell in the UK though.

    I personally don't like cases with a shit load of LEDs and lights though. I like to be able to sleep in the same room as my computer when its turned on.

    I'm using firefox with ABP. It doesn't block the ads that move when you scroll, you have to right click then choose block.

    Well, I don't see any ads, so I guess it's just you.

    I sleep with the sheets covering my head
    And the Apollo doesn't have that many light... It's just sexy IMO.

    How about this:
    http://www.f13pc.com/loja/detalhes.php?id=2293

    Same price, a million times better looking, and still has t3h L3dz you want so much.

    ALSO: Don't trust reviews of NZXT cases.

    Bottom line: NZXT makes horrible cases. They have terrible quality and you should avoid them at all costs.

    That website is overpriced too...
