Most Critical Review

Not bad...

Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great case for the price. Tool less feature is really great. Case its self is fairly queit. No whiny fans. Mother board offset holes lined up well.

Cons: The one I got seemed to be a little warped. While the video and sound card's fit fine into the mother board they would not fit flush againts the back of the case. This is why I gave it a 3. A little on the small side. And the front panel audio wires will not fit around my 8800gts.

Overall Review: For $xx even with a few short comings this is still a pretty good case.

For the money you can't go wrong

APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case

Pros: CHEAP!!! For what you are paying this is the best mATX case Newegg has for sale. Took it almost completely apart to do a little modding, it broke down and went back together with zero problems. Was very surprised I did not cut myself once during installation. Case fan that comes in the box is nice and quiet. Even in such a small space all of my pc parts are registering temps well within tolerances.

Cons: There are a few things that I did not like about this case though... The holes in the hd rack do not match up right with the hd, so your hd sticks out of the rack about an inch and a half. Made it near impossible to install more then one hd. If the power connector on your mobo is on the back side of the board, this may cause a problem. Also if you have a large video card it could be an issue too. The green power on led and red hd led are ugly, but where easily replaced with a couple of blue ones I had lying around.

Overall Review: An 80mm fan does not line up with the offsets in the front of the case. So if you want to put a second fan in upfront I would recommend a 60mm. While there are offsets for an 120mm fan, I do not see how one would fit and still be able to put an hd in the hd rack. Proper wire routing is a must being an mATX case, so keep that in mind when making your purchase. A modular PSU is highly recommended. I am also able to fit an Nvidia gts 250 in this case with a bit of room to spare. A side facing PCIE power cable could cause problems when trying to put the case door on.

$45.00 and still working after a month, I'm happy.

APEX DM-387 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply
APEX DM-387 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply

Pros: CHEAP... WORKS... Looks pretty good in my HTPC setup.

Cons: It is sorta flimsy... The case materials are thin and would bend easily. But then again I'm not going to be standing on it. Power supply is form factor which would make it tough to replace.

You can't get much better for $30.00

ASUS Radeon HD 3450 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card EAH3450/DI/256M

Pros: I'm using this in an HTPC. Setup was a snap, just download the newest drivers from ati's site. Sound through hdmi works well. But you will need to disable your other sound controllers in device manager to allow it to work, at least I had to. For $30.00 I could not be more happy.

Cons: I have had a couple of display issues, it does not seem to have the ability to support 1080p, lots of artifacting.... And on a couple of occasions when windows has shut the monitor off I was not able to get it to come back up. I believe I solved this by never allowing windows to turn the monitor (TV) off.

Sennheiser DJs HD202 for the money can not be beat!!!

Sennheiser - Professional DJ styled - Closed Dynamic Bass Headphones (HD 202)

Pros: I am no audiophile, but I do know these are some of the best sounding head phones I have ever had, and I have owned headphones that coast five times as much. At $25.00 they can not be beat. I will likely never buy another brand of head phone again.

Cons: They are not perfect however. The cord is a bit on the long side for me (9ft.). The included belt clip could make them a bit more manageable, but it is not something I would see myself actually wearing on my belt. Also they are a bit on the small side. So a person with a larger then average head may find them a bit uncomfortable.
