    I am in the market for a new PC case. I am looking for something less than $160. I have been looking at the Thermaltake cases, and I think these are the ones that I like the best, however I wanted to here your suggestions.

    What I am basically looking for in the case is silence. Right now my computer sounds like beast. I am tired of hearing it all the time. I chose the TT cases because of their fan control among other things. But do you guys have any suggestions on a good case?

    Note Flex-ATX Mid or Full Tower...

    For my new system I'm getting the Thermaltake Xaser III V2000A Silver. I love that case! Its a little pricey ($272 CDN ~ with 420watt PSU), but aw well.

    I'd go for an Antec, the new P160 is absolutely beautiful, but I don't think many people like the style. It does feature large 120mm fans though, so it's pretty quiet.

    If you don't like them, you could always go for Lian-Li's, although if you like the Thermaltake-style cases...you might find them abit too 'dull'.

    I'd go for Antec as well... My faves would be the SLK3700-BQE, the Sonata the Lanboy Series.

    Though, some of the CoolerMaster cases are nice too.

    If you want something different, try this. :D
