    Antec rolled out the GX700, which it touts as a "rugged" case, which could be explained by the generous use of steel in the front-panel, such as 5.25-inch bay doors (not spacers), and fan intake. The ATX mid-tower may not feature detachable drive cages, but claims sufficient room (29.5 cm or 11.5-inch) room for graphics cards. It features four 5.25-inch bays, which are covered with individual bay doors, and five 3.5-inch bays that can each hold 2.5-inch drives. Its motherboard tray features cutouts at the right spots. Cooling includes two 140 mm top exhaust fans (which can be swapped for a 240 mm-long radiator), two 120 mm front intakes (optional), a 120 mm rear exhaust, and provision for two 120 mm side intakes. Measuring 500 mm (H) x 200 mm (W) x 450 mm (D), it weighs about 6.3 kg. Its front-panel includes two each of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 ports.

    That's going to make a nice military mod job for somebody.

    Maybe that's why I was thinking Metal Gear Solid.

    Agreed with Cover_Death, getting a bit tired at all the themed chassis around. Need more choices with designs used from companies like Silverstone and Fractal Designs.

    However if it is $59, then Antec might be on a winner for a not too shabby budget gaming case.

    Up for pre-order at OCUK for £59.99. Pretty decent price for a rugged case :rockout:
