Nice!

It looks a lot like mine except newer and better components.

Mine glows red and has laser etching on one side of the case.

The nice thing is with cases like this we can just buy new components when we want to upgrade because there will always be plenty of room!

We think alike lol. I have been for the last month checking, looking, contemplating what to build and have both a Intel and Ryzen build going on PCpartpicker.com. Have been batting back and forth on which to get...a i7, i5 or the new Ryzen. Had a real cool looking tempered glass sided case I was considering, but I really like that case of yours Bill. Where did you get that from? I want a glass side panel to showcase the colors I'm planning. Here is the first build I was considering:


 
AMD - Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
 $176.99

Gigabyte - GA-AX370-Gaming K5 ATX AM4 Motherboard
 $151.98
   
G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
 $133.88   
   
Western Digital - Black PCIe 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
 $109.99
 
Hitachi - Ultrastar 7K4000 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
 $65.99
 
EVGA - GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB ACX 2.0 Video Card
 $134.89   
 
Phanteks - Enthoo Pro M Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Case
 $107.98
 
EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
 $88.49
 
Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit
 $89.89 
 Total: $1060.08

dont waste your cash on a i7. short of doing heavy DB work or video editing there is really no need for a chip with that kinda juice these days. esp if only in it for gaming.

I would spend the money on a larger M.2 drive. Also strongly recommend the Asus ROG boards over gigabyte. and go intel over AMD. The price point isnt that far apart and AMD imo has lost ground to intel over the last 3-4 years.

I got the Vengeance case at Newegg.  It was about $100.  It comes in Military green or a flat black I think was the other choice.  I got the Military Green.  The handles on top make it an easy carry and the sides have clip on clamps. 

Pekin - I can change the color of the LED or even have them cycle.  I have the green fade effect going in and out.  Kind of like Guldan's heart beat.  :)

Been playing Elder Scrolls online.  Better graphics.  No monthly fee.

Better quests.

Pekin - Is it MMO?  I might try it if it is. 

I have really been into the goblin business in WOW.  Making Millions on the AH.  Well.  Not yet an expert but 20-30K/day aint bad.
