I have googled a lot of places selling mATX cases. I have been a customer of Newegg in the past by upgrading my current pc this past August. There are other sellers of course, but I'm partial to Newegg and they have more handy reviews available. Directron and TigerDirect are two other places I have looked. There are so many to choose from. Which brands are better, and which are worse in your opinion? Would like your feedback on that.
Has anyone used the 'cube'? Have heard good and not so good with these, but Newegg had one or two that looked good and had good reviews overall. What is your experience with these? But I do not care about their gamer cubes, the flashy colors and built-in carrying handle. I'm not a gamer anyway besides playing cards. One I tend to like is called the AeroCool M40 mATX cube case-black. Seems to be plenty of room with that particular one and there is a beige one too. There are others to list, but won't here.
All I really need is just one 5.25" external drive and don't even need a 3.5" external drive. One or two internal 3.5" bays are fine. I want to use the full size PSU. Btw, would you also recommend 'modular' cables to help keep inside more tidy? Other builders have recommended them. I assume that could be more of an issue with the cube cases.
I am also still using a 17" crt monitor. The color I am not sure about. It is a light color. Beigh maybe? Does that sound right? According to what I saw elsewhere, the correct color might be beige, but I thought beige was more a very light brown? Anyway you get the picture. I do appreciate your ideas and will make note of them when I decide to build again.
