Newegg has the Antec NSK 4482 ATX Mid Tower Case + 380 Watt Power Supply (Black / Silver) for $70 - $20 rebate [Exp 1/27] = $50 with free shipping. Your standard ATX case, which lacks all the extra bells and whistles. But doesn't scream nerd either.
$90 Retail: $120

    It's aesthetics make me consider the saying "If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one around to hear it does it make a sound..?" In this case, if you walk into a room and there's a computer that you built... does anyone show any interest? To me it screams Goodwill box!

    While the worst things about this are you have to remove the top to get the side panel off! While there's a mount for a 80mm front fan, the worst part you can't get a 120mm fan in there. I suppose if you remove that plastic thing and chop the out grill a 92mm fan could be stuffed there. While they Swiss-cheesed the side panel with 3 vents, one would've been acceptable, personally I'd rather they not punched any vents there.

    I suppose it could be a nice NAS box, but needs more HDD spots, they say 3x 5 Maybe you could employ the two other external 3.5"; although then air airflow around them would need to be addressed. I especially that they include EarthWatts - 380 watts of Continuous Power Active PFC, 80 PLUS Bronze certified, and that it includes a rear 120mm TriCool exhaust fan.

    But really Antec this is so PIII 2006-07 you really need to redo, ”it's long in the tooth”.
