    well ive got about £28 and i need the best looking case for that sort of money, i was looking at this (sorry ocUK)

    is this a wise choice? or are there better on the market, bear in mind i do not need a PSU.

    and advice/suggestions will be welcome although i must not go voer this price of £28.

    Please link to the manufacturer's website.

    Remove the link. Get the Super Lanboy for £33. Ever thought of reading the FAQ ?

    Yep, I'd say you're on a one-way ticket to bannedville unless you remove the competitor link.

    That case is - well - excrement.

    Buy the Super Lanboy and be done with it. If you can't afford it now, then save up. Either case would be over £28 once you include the carriage anyway.

    I suggest you read the FAQ and remove the competitor link, it breaks one of the basic rules of this shop forum.

    The Antec Super Lanboy will be serveral times better, for only a few pounds more.

    Its worth it in everyway, many competitors sell the Super Lanboy for upto £80! :)

    You can always remove the front grill, AND the fan. I've seen people remove the grill and spray it metalic so it matches the case. Looks good :)

    Raikiri is the man for Lanboy pictures, I will point him in the direction of this thread for you.

    The blue LED's dont have to be there though.

    You can have a browse of the cases gallery, lots of Super Lanboys in it. :)

    Warning, its a long browse.

    Up to £40 there most certainly is not even any competition for the Lanboy. Not new anyway.

    At the price the case is it is literally a steal, at £60 it was a good buy!

    The Thermaltake Mambo is another option, its a good solid case for the money but compared to the lanboy it is ultimately a cheap solution.

    Lanboy is one of the best cases sub £80, yet alone £33!

    There are more than just the one option, but the Lanboy is leaps and bounds ahead.

    £80 case for £33, and it competes at £80 with cases so at £33 it somewhat dominates the competition.

    You might find a Jeantech Phong in stock somewhere - the old Phong 1 is in your budget and pretty much fits the bill.
