Last time I was shopping for a computer case the Cosmos S came out. Are there any cool cases that have come out since then?

The Antec 1200 is pretty sweet. I dont really care for it. It's a bit too "gamer/industrial" looking for my tastes. But it's a really nice case.

Coolermaster released some HAF case that's pretty sweet too. It's an edgier looking case. Pretty big too.

It really depends on how much you want to spend on a case.I liked the Antec 1200 ,but it was to tall for where I was going to put it.The Antec 900 looks good but I wanted one that was longer so my new GTX 280 would fit better.So I decided on the NZXT TEMPEST because it was plenty long enough.It has 2 140mm fans in the top and 4 more 120mm fans in it.I liked it because it will hold up to 8 harddrives.It looks sorted like the Antec 900.I like how the antec is build.I wish I would have got the antec 1200 when I could have got it for $131 when they was running a special with free shipping.I just wanted one this time that did not have a door on the front of it.

I like the Zalman Z-MACHINE GT1000-TI

Although not very practical in some respects it is awesome in others....

Other than that the new Silverstone cases look really nice.......

i had an asus acrylic case once and they look brilliant but they can get a littler warmer than metal and dust is a hasle unless your in a fairly darkly lit room when you wont notice it, and of course easily marked

Acrylic cases are ideal for fancy water cooled systems, with plent of lighting to show off :) Otherwise, I dont see the point in them. Why show off a not so special rig?

I like how it is made and it has plenty of room for any motherboard and will fit any video card you want to put in it.I not cazy about the blue lights ,but I can unhooked them.The price is not bad either.plus the 6 fans keeping it cool.Plus I wanted one that did not have a front door on it,after breaking off my Antec P180 case door.
