What do you reckon is the best mATX case for LAN Gaming on PCCG?
I really like this one www.pccasegear.com/...

I know its not PCCG, and in fact I don't think its still made anymore, but does anyone remember the Antec Super Lanboy?? what a blast from the past!

I can't say I really know much about LAN cases, from normal cases you want something light, aluminium construction, not steel, but for actual lan cases I remember thermaltake made a proper lan case which actually had a fat handle on the top, similar to this one
www.pccasegear.com/...

it appears PCCG only sells the lanbox "lite"

This is the original lanbox
www.techpowerup.com/...
We started this conversation a while ago with a few good ideas in it.
pc.mmgn.com/...

that NZXT looks like someone was a bit fixated with plastic surgery and decided to put that idea onto a case, hideous.
Another kinda cool idea is the thermaltake lanbox which maxiboy posted before.
Something like this www.pccasegear.com/... from Lian Li, just needs a handle and will fid big graphics cards.
out of all of the them i prefer the vulcan, now i just need specs for a decent gaming pc, using the vulcan.
Conditions: it has to be under 1k.
Go : D

Why dont you do it since you have built over... *counts*... 20 different rigs so far, you must be getting good at it.
you funny child, fine then, i admit to not having most of those builds, my current one is:
i5 750
5850
CM 690
Silent Pro Modular 700W
4GB Ram

All the other ones were lies.

Just because you finally fessed up im going to let that comment slide.

Try a AMD X4 with a 5850 4gb ram and whatever else you can cram in :)

I'm about to jump into a game but if you remind me tomora night i can probs do you up a build.

Add me on steam, Rendawg.
lol, i call everyone child.. its sort of a habit..
Ok sweet, i will.

most lan cases that you would consider an actual lan case are m-atx cases right, so you should have the hardware that suits them.

Is there a cheaper MOBO?
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
Ram: Patriot PC3-10600 2x2GB DDR3 PSD34G1333KH
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA74GMT-S2 mATX
GPU: Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD5850 Overclocked 1GB
PSU: Antec Neo Eco 520C 520W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB ST3500418AS
Case: NZXT Vulcan Micro ATX Case
ODD: BenQ DW240S 24x DVDRW
Total: $1073

All PCCG. modify where necessary.

This is the best lan case EVAR!!!

This would be good:
www.pccasegear.com/...
Pretty small Lian Li case, not super small so you could cram some pretty good stuff in there and being one of their aluminium models it would be really REALLY light. I couldn't believe how light mine was with nothing in it, this is even smaller!
EDIT:
Or something like this:
www.pccasegear.com/...
The Xigmatek cases are really cheap!
Xig cases are awesome!
the reason for them being so cheap is apparently they use really, really thin steel.
Doesn't feel structurally sound at all (opinion formed only by reviews) so that wouldn't be the best option for something you are going to move around a lot.
