Price: $35.00 +/- USD

When building a computer, choosing the right case can sometimes be as tough or tougher than chosing what goes inside. Regardless of the internal components, a case can give the impression that a high tech beast is waiting to be unleashed; or on the other hand it can also give the impression that you're using a pathetic pile of junk with bairly the resources to print “Hello World.”

However, as we've seen in the past; just because the case looks cool, doesn't necessarly mean that it is a good case. That's what happened with the Silver Hawk All-Aluminum Mid-Tower ATX case that xPCGear sent me. As you'll see, this is a case of “you get what you pay for.
