The selection of computer cases in today's market is overwhelming. The sizes, styles, and prices range from the conservative to the absurd. Finding a case that balances an appropriate size with decent looks (that won't break the bank) may not be hard due to the lack of choices, but on the contrary, due to too many choices. Compucase may not be the first name you think of when shopping for a case, but as the US source for HEC Group cases, they may be worth consideration the next time you want to find a new home for your system.
