i am going to buy a new case but not sure which to get.

i was going to go for the :
Terra-Byte Aurora Acrylic Case

although it looks good, and a review wasnt too bad, it still has some bad things about it.

has anyone or is anyone using this case? how easy was it to transer the guts of your computer too it? and overall what is it like! are they cooler than standard cases,

are there any other not so expensive cases which are better!

any help appreciated

Plastic is a thermal insulator and will provide no electrical interference shielding. Not a good idea for a computer case. Expect (more) interference on your TV, cell phone, stereo, etc.

Cooling will also be less effective.

If your power supply goes up in smoke the fire could spread to the case and your home. Metal will contain the damage.

Well anything becomes a conductor if you have enough voltage.
Well he might be using some of that polymerised plastic that can withstand temperatures of upto 1000c, like those TV dinners you stick in the oven for 45 minutes or so.
