Between the Cheetos and Pizza Pockets and constant supply of tasty snacks to stay fueled up and gaming into the wee hours of the morning, investing in a white-themed PC can be dangerous.

Back in the early days of computing, cavemen would build their PCs inside of stone enclosures. They needed to use stone because it was the most popular material at the time, and also to protect from saber-toothed tigers who delighted in the taste of silicon. Fast forward to today and we no longer need to worry about saber-toothed tigers stealing our components, so it's increasingly difficult to find a case made out of stone. Instead, we have much fancier enclosures, such today's top deal for a Corsair Carbide Series 500R Mid-Tower for $80 with free shipping (normally $110 - use coupon code: [EMCPGHE36]; additional $20 mail-in-rebate).
