The Antec P160 is a very nice computer case. Infact I just put my new system in one. The only problem I have encounters is that the power button is very suseptable to being triggered even byt the slightest bump.

I have the P180. Looks a lot cooler.

Wow. I like the P180. No bling though, just a featureless sleek monolith of a case. Still very cool.

I recently got a Thermaltake Armor VA8000SWA case for my new machine. Big monster full tower.

Go ahead and step up to the Cooler Master Wave Master or the CM Stacker.

Just a friendly jab. Both Antec cases look great to me.

That's what attracted me to it. I don't like those cases with window kits and flashing lights and everything. I'm not a 16 year-old playing Counter-Strike on it.

P180 Looking to pick that one up, as it's probably one of, if not THE, most silent cases out there.

Hey! I'm a 29 year old playing Counter Strike on mine.

Anyway, the lights on mine are pretty spiffy. Even my dad likes it, and he's nearly 60. Sometimes bling can be done well.

Antec makes great cases. Got two in my house and have helped a few friends build computers using Antec cases as well. Their bling lies inside the case and not outside. Roomy, solid power supplies, lots of ventilation, removable storage bays, screwless access, slides for fast removal of disc drives. Tough finding them cheap though, newegg is about as good a place as I've ever found to buy them.

Here's a pretty good deal on an Antec without a power supply.

The P180 reviews at Amazon (there are only 3 of them right now), are not great; apparently the tabs on the main side panels are small and plastic, and prone to breaking off, and Antec isn't replacing them.
