    I'm getting ready to build an HTPC, and need some help choosing a case. This will be the first computer I've ever built. I do have someone knowledgeable about HTPCs in general helping me (fortunately!)

    I want something that will fit in with the other gear and can be put with it (next to my receiver, LD player, etc).

    Here are a few I've found so far. What do you think? Have any recommendations?

    Those look pretty sleek!

    But, I thought this one looked cool. [​IMG]

    The 613 is supposed to be a very well built HTPC case, and it looks nice too. What's your budget?

    Wow, that Dign 5 really is a nice case. Thanks for that link, Scott!

    Sure np, but the more I think about it the more I realize the Dign/D-Vine 4 fits my needs; 2 5.25" drives (so I don't have to spend the dough to get a combo DVD + CD-RW drive) and it has handy front USB and Firewire. The 5 definitely has the best looks though.
