you can get a NZXT source 220 or a Xigmatek Asgard pro for $40 plus shipping. I'd say either of those would be the better budget cases.

depends. just htpc or gaming as well? tv tuner/dvr? does it need to look like a piece of A/V equip or any case will do?

eta: $300 on the low end.

Did Coyote die?

I haven't seen him posts in a while and he said he shipped me that case but I haven't gotten it yet.

If he changed his mind about sending it to me then it's no big deal and that's OK. I just want to make sure that if he did send UPS didn't lose it or someone maybe didn't steal it after it was delivered or something.

I'd say he went into hiding before the Steam Sale but he apparently has an unlimited gaming budget so I doubt it.

Maybe his girl finally had enough and shot his computer(s)

I was thinking maybe one of his Titans died and he is in mourning.

Probably took a few days off of work to deal with the sudden loss.

I'm not sure yet if at all. If I do it I want it to game a little, prob just at 720p. I thought about using an apu for that but every time I mock one it's about $500. Maybe record, what would that take? For sure I would want it to game, play blu ray, and stream which is pretty basic.

sounds about right if you are including a blu ray player.

I think that's a little out of my price range right now. I want to do it though

I got some RAM for $40.

And a Radeon 5750. No idea how it would perform in today's games, but I used to game with it at 1600x900 in the MW2 and Blops 1 days.

The ram would help a little but I think the whole thing is too expensive right now.

Ha I didn't really go to tigerland, I went once after I graduated and said frick this . I should be in town for a game this year, maybe we can "accidentally bump" into each other so my wife doesn't think I am arranging meetings with people on TD . I was talking to coyote on steam last week and she said how do I know this person won't come kill me

He changed his mind and didn't want to face you; decided to just ditch it all over a 150 buck case :)



I met blue and bought some of his goods.

If any of you are wondering, He looks very similar to a 300 pound mongol





not really
