Been looking at the daunting task of upgrading my pc and computerbitz on here as nicely pointed me in the right direction of a motherboard, processor and memory bundle but need a new case aswell. Been looking on the internet and it seems I have the option of buying something fairly cheap but looks naff of not very good, or spending about 70-80quid excluding psu not really what I want lol. So just wondering anyone know of any good forums or anything or anywhere where I might be able to get a good case secondhand, ebay never seem to have much on just mainly new stuff. Any help would be good. Cheers.

just having a quick look round for you and just stumbled on this

comes with a 550w psu and IMO a cracking offer other sites are flogging it for £60-70 with a 450-500w psu

Recommended Retail Price (excl. VAT):
89,95 € / US$ 119.95

Cheers for your help, did quite like the coolermaster centurian aswell but to be honest only want to spen about 30quid without a psu or about 50 quid with psu and obviously know that the case I'll probably get for that will be fairly poo. Thats why I was asking if anyone knows where I can get something decent secondhand seen a couple on ebay but tend to be collection only. Anyone go on any other forums where there's any for sale?
