    Decent new case?

    Im looking to rebuild my system a bit, and I'd quite like a new case but im not sure whats good at the moment.
    I'd like a midi tower case that looks fairly good and has some decent features like removable fan filters and runs fairly quiet. I'd be willing to spend up to £100 on one i reckon.
    Any suggestions or ideas?

    Antec solo is nice at around £60. Looks a bit basic but it's one of the best quiet cases there are.

    Re: Decent new case?

    How about the antec p182? That looks pretty good and seems pretty quiet, im just a bit concerned if the cables from my Corsair VX450W will reach the very top of the motherboard where the cpu power is situated...

    Not quite midi but the Antec 1200 is worth looking at.

    If the 1200 style suits your tastes, the 900 would be more suitable (ie smaller than the 1200)

    Re: Decent new case?

    So would the coolermaster 690

    However if you're willing to spend £100 and don't need anything bigger than a mid tower, then look at the Lian-Li and Silverstone cases, both are quite pricey but high build quality. (for under £100 you're looking at there mid towers, anything bigger from them costs over £100)

    If the p180 is too big then consider the mini-version, only mATX motherboard not full ATX but it is mid-tower sized and very good.
