medium slow to really slow, that is a ghetto case... If it were a car, it would be a riced out civic.

If you only want the positives from me, then:

-It's damn light.
-Flashy, if you like that.
-The temperature reader thing is okay, but I think it's there for eye candy.
-Thumbscrews
-Simple

Since you spend 99% of your time driving outside of a race track, then a riced-out civic > some fugly race car.

Are you sure your Dell mobo and PSU would fit? They have an annoying history of making things proprietary...

Oh, and if you're into just the case, then consider a SS Berserker Case.

Edit: I urge you to click on one of those case reviews on the left side panel of the screen (when you click the link). The cooling setup in the case is godly.

Gamer, the Aspire X-Dreamer II is a fine budget case, so long as you're into the blue light thing. I've said it many times (based on hands on experience) that you get quite a bit for your dollar with it:

Laser cut fan grills
2 Blue LED 80mm fans
6 LEDs on the front panel
Front I/O ports with door
Black bay covers
Side Window
Front mounted LED temp display
Glossy black finish
350w PSU (granted its generic)

I've used the case and liked it enough to purchase a second one for a budget rig. The weakest link is the PSU, which is still kicking after over a year of use (currently running a Barton 2500+ system). While it cannot compete with a 'real' case such as the Wavermaster or Lian-Li's, it's also not priced as such.

For a sub-$60 case, the X-Dreamer II will suit you fine. Their customer support is decent as well. Hopefully Tuathal will see this thread and chime in as well, as he purchased one partially on my recommendation and had the same sentiment as I did.

Does your Mobo have standard mounts? I have a Dell :cry: and i wanted to put it into a new case.But, when I looked at the Mobo and did not see any screw holes, just some retangular plastic things holding the Mobo in. So, i did not get a new case.

you can actually use those plastic mounts in current cases sometimes, its just another way to hold it in. the thing is dell often times uses a non standard mounting holes, whichs means its not actually atx.

If you are into gaming and are/will be running high end hardware the PSU is pretty light at 350 Watts.

I'm building a system and purchased this Antec case from NewEgg for $116.50 and it comes with a 430 Watt True Power PSU.

It looks ok, like a gaming rig but, others will say spend a bit more and get better options and I tend to agree. Lian Li are my favorite....

Also has anyone seen the new ASUS cases, they look like wild.
