First of all, I prefer something cheap. I don't want to dish out 100$ for what is essentially a piece of metal. (Yes I know a CPU is also essentially a piece of metal too but hopefully you get my point :P )
I have some links I have been looking at, but imr on my phone right now.

Right in my feels bra.
I spent 100€ on a Cooler Master Case but when i brought it here in my country, they broke it into pieces,
even tho i spent 100€ to bring it here.
No warranty

I cried really hard, i literally had to glue all the broken pieces.

That sucks Gameblabla D:. Anyway what's the most important is what you'll put inside the case. But of course you have to choose your case wisely too. For example don't choose one that is too small, else it will be a major PITA to remove the hard drive and other things if they ever need to be replaced (although nothing can beat HP's prebuilt desktops, which often requires tearing the front of the case apart with metal scissors or something in order to get the hard drive out or other s*** like that).

Rip i forgot i ever asked this :/
Anyways, DJ i totaly understand what you mean :) This is why i asked if someone could recommend a specific model :)

Yay I'm here to the rescue!  :P

I need to ask you some questions first: What type of motherboard are you using and what type of cooling are you using?

If you are using a micro-atx motherboard, I would recommend the Thermaltake Core V21.
If you are using an atx motherboard, I would recommend the Fractal Design Core 2300.
If you are using a mini-itx motherboard, I would recommend the Cooler Master Elite 130.

Actually, water cooling will do well in the micro-atx and atx cases, probably not the mini-itx one.

Also, what are the parts that you have already chosen for your PC? :P
I'm just trying to grab some inspiration. :P

You should be happy if  case you buy nowerdays is made out of metal at all... <_<

I personally prefer just using old cases from computers around 2000 when they still had those doublesized computer cases (twice the height). You can fit ANYTHING in there plus it's all good metal so ou can add random screws whereever you want ^^
Also you have to worry about the floor, not the case, if it ever happens to fall down  :thumbsup:

That's very much untrue, only cheap cases are not made of metal but all somewhat better cases are.
ceci n'est pas une signature

erm.... Yeah, maybe...  but they would be outside my price category... <_<  :P
at least I myself never even touched any full metal case that was less than 10 years old <_< except for a macbook which doesnt count xD

Dude, that's because most of the cases are made from carbon fiber and glass.  :thumbsup:

I had black plastic. And grey plastic. And cheap metal. And fat metal plates... What do carbon fiber cases actually look like? ::)
