    Yeah, just like what it says. I need a new case that is an ATX but is compatible with microATX (my board is microATX). A window would be nice and I need all of this to be under $100. Thanks, please tell me any websites or stores that I could get one.

    why not just buy a micro atx case, or buy an atx mobo?

    your selection will be cut in half trying to find one that fits both.

    a nice ATX case for cheap would be the Spire case series, usually under $50.

    most come with a 80mm rear fan, and a huge 120mm+ side panel fan with airflow cone. No window however. the front isnt even plastic, its some wierd rubber material, with a crackled leather like appearance. nothing feels too cheap on it either, cept the on/off and reset buttons wiggle alot.

    they dont come with PSU's.

    this is what i have, and it works well for me

    Satchmo, that should work with a microATX motherboard then right?
    I'm going to get another 400-watt powersupply so that I can transfer my second computer(HP) to this for LANs and such.

    I was actually thinking about getting that but on the HP, a Pentium D also, has heat problems and I don't think a SFF case will help it's temps. I might go with an ATX mid-tower and use liquid cooling because these Pentium D's are hott!

    go to www.pricewatch.com and look for a case in the 60-100 dollar range. narrow down your search by choosing an aluminum case

    well any atx case will allow a mini atx mobo...i actually would reccomend a m-atx mobo and a full/mid tower atx case for liquid cooling...you have a ton of room for a res and pump..

    A shop near my home has lots of 3r's cases, and because i know the owner i can ask him to try and get one for me when i built my next rig, i have a 3r r103 Aluminium and like it, the only problem is ventilation because the case is small
