I tend to like the thermaltake cases as well and have heard good things about the higher end one but this one seems like it might be a little flimsy

how much are u willing to spend...the antec p-160wf is the one i just got as u already know i think, and it is soooo nice. most of the thermaltakes are decent

I would personally recommend an Antec over a Thermaltake because of the time they put into the airflow of the cases. It's really second only to LianLi (which is A LOT of cash). That said, that Thermaltake is a pretty good deal and I'd probably buy it for that price.

EDIT: Damn, I just noticed the how similar that looks to a Coolermaster WaveMaster. That's like TT's second attempt to knock it off. Although this one looks a little more like the Silverstone version.

Yeah I love P-180 and P-160's. And for LAN stuff and if your on the go, get the lanboy series. Go with Antec IMO, but the LianLi is probably better but way more expensive. thermaltakes, coolermasters, a couple of aspires are nice, too.

Yes, I prefer Antec over Thermaltake as well. Some of Thermaltakes cases are... kinda cheap, like cheap plastic and stuff. Antec cases are usually of better materials and better thought out.

how does that Antec's price compare though? It may be he is just looking for a good deal. I know I am.

The case in my sig ftw. (xmasgrin)

I've had Antec cases over the years and always loved em, however this is my first thermaltake case and I have to say I love it. Nicest case I've ever owned and not just for looks but the amount of space to work in in a joy. Its not cheap but it is one fracking awesome case.
