    Need Cheap case recommendations

    hi,

    just building myself a new pc, but i need to get a decent case, not looking to spend anymore than £50 on one though, don't know why but i'd prefer a black one. so far i was looking at the black case from zorro, what does everyone think? any good?

    http://www.planetmicro.co.uk/product...ckcode=M002518

    anyone have any other suggestions?

    also i'm gonna be running a 3ghz P4 on an abit IC7 board with 1gb of paired 512mb corsair ram, probably 2 hdd a 40gb and 160gb, dvd writer and cd rom drives too. as for graphics card, probably gonna get the matrox triple head P750 card. Not really gonna be overclocking it, i'm just using it for video editing. anyone have any ideas on what kind of cooling requirements i will need? i think the case above has 7 fan spaces in total and comes with 3 fans. will this be enough?

    cheers

    I also looked at the Zorro, however, take a look at the Scorpio's from www.xcase.co.uk (have a look at their pre-modded cases) - the Zorros AND the Scorpios are both in the list. The Scorpio is almost a straight copy of the Zorro, and I'm impressed with mine (the blue one) for the cost of it (cost be £50 including VAT and Delivery, take that into account with the Zorro and you'll be paying nearer £70 I guess). It's got a mini-review of it on the xcase site. It also comes with a 400W PSU.

    Having looked at what Planet Micro's charging for the Zorro, I'd be quite tempted actually!

    A coolermaster centurion would fit the bill i think

    /\ that ones in black also available in silver. Excellent case and by far the best you will get sub £50

    It is a nice case and I very nearly went for one myself, but you do have to factor in the cost of a PSU if you don't have one.

    yeah, the coolermaster case is nice, but i'll probably go for the zorro one as it comes with a 450w psu, 3 fans, window etc...
