    Sharkoon is now offering a new ATX midi tower in its case line-up. The Sharkoon Desperado comes in a striking black and silver design and is available in two configurations, with or without pre-installed case fans. The front of the case features a black mesh grill that helps improve airflow, while power and reset buttons as well as two USB ports, audio connections, and activity lights are found on an upright silver panel. In spite of the case's compact dimensions of 180 x 460 x 410 mm (W x D x H), it still has room for four optical drives, a 3.5 inch device, four hard drives and seven expansion cards.

    The Value model comes with a high-performance 250 mm fan in the side panel, and features a manual fan control on the side of the case. LED lighting and a bull's-eye design on the fan grill add to the overall style of the case. In addition, space is available for an 80, 92 or 120 mm fan in the front and an 80 or 92 mm fan in the back of the case.

    The less expensive Economy model allows users to custom configure the case to fit their cooling needs. Up to four case fans can be installed, with space for an 80, 92 or 120 mm fan in the front, an 80 or 92 mm fan on the back and for two 80 or 120 mm fans in the side of the case.

    End customers will find the Sharkoon Desperado available immediately from authorized retailers for the suggested retail price of 39 euros (Economy) and 49 euros (Value).

    If i owned a really crappy pc, then why not use a crappy case!
    I dont think a pair of 4870x2's would even fit in that case, and even if they did, it would look really ugly in there with hard to reach places. As for the cooling side of things, the case looks like a brick and offers poor circulation.

    I wouldnt get a $39 case unless my whole pc was worth less then $200. For those of us that have computers above the $3000 mark would feel dirty using $39 case, besides it would seriously hinder our overclocking.
