Ya that one looks nice, but i want an aluminum case for sure. Looks like the only ones any good that aren't too expensive are the kingwin and skyhawk cases. Guess ill keep looking around.

There really isn't a difference with steel and aluminum except for weight and price. This is the one i have and i lub it!

Sorry, don't know what happened. I worked before, here it is a gain:

Noticed there's more #'z to it now. Maybe newegg.com was doing something with the link while I copied it(?) And this IS the ALUMINUM version too. Quoted AD Below:

CHIEFTEC Server Chasis (Aluminum Workstation Tower with Plastic Front Cover) Black w/acrylic window No Power Supply
Front Accessible: 4 x 5.25", 2 x 3.5", Internal: 4 x 3.5".Weights Only 18LBs! Model#: AX-01BD SPX-02B -OEM FedEx Saver Shipping $18.00

Oh what the hell, here'z the link to newegg'z CHIEFTEC category:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduct.asp?submit=manufactory&catalog=7&manufactory=1502&DEPA=1&sortby=14&order=1

Aluminum versions are towards the the bottom of page. Most of these are calle the DRAGON Series.

Here'z Chieftec'z link if ya' want to check it out:

*I don't know what I'd do without my "Favorite's" folder....:D

You should check out Enermax'z website too for some snazzy cases, a little high priced but nice - I personally want one of these:

LOVE ENERMAX, ANTEC is great also. But I think LT-73 once put (I think or someone here @ SG did), a WELL known "Brand" PSU is just about the same as another. I have the 350W version w/dual fan'z [dual fan'z are what you want] of the Enermax - very quiet. Kinda' scary though [the silence] gotta check on them once in awhile to make sure they are running, lol. I plan on a 450W or Higher for next purchase - prices on Enermax PSU'z are decent, my 350W for $60.00USD about a year ago and no probs.
The thing to look for is the specifications in the PSU though, as per your needs. Closely look @ the +5v & +12v rail output the higher the better, especially for the amount of devices running in your rig.
