    http://www.pccasegear.com.au/prod440.htm
    and
    http://www.pccasegear.com.au/prod24.htm

    any one see any reason why i shouldnt?
    or anything i should get excited about by getting these?
    from the reviews i've read, and what i've heard these are pretty good cases, bit x-ey i guess, but sometimes you need to pay that little bit extra :P

    Can't say what shipping might go for in Oz, but I can say that the case is a good one. It's the same as the Xaser 6000 I tested not too long ago, except with a black finish instead of the silver/grey one. :)

    Also from what i gather the 5000 plus has a steel chassis, but the 6000 is made from aluminium. Anyhow IMO, both those cases are very expensive, they are the same chenming case in a new coat of paint, with a few small features, and a large pricetag. I think i saw the 6000 plus at AusPCMarket for $380 w/ NO PSU. Factoring in the cost of a good PSU you have atleast $500, to add to that shipping costs. I would just get the Antec 1080AMG, its basically the same build, in steel, with a top range PSU (one of the best PSU's available at the moment) and its half the price of the Thermaltake case (after you add the cost of a decent PSU).

    Yeh half the fun is modding the case on your own. Basically IMO Thermaltake = Waste of money.

    Remember that not everyone has the time, talent and tools necessary to mod a case. While I love the Antec line (it's what I use as my normal system case), the Thermaltake offers good quality and some mods for those who either can't or don't want to mess with the process themselves.

    Yup, there will always be those who go the alienware route and cop out completely. But to each his own. :)
