That Phantom you have is a pretty good choice. Most other cases with an Alienware-esque aesthetic are made by less than reliable brands. The only other case I could think of at that price point that's worth looking at is the NZXT S340.

Wish I could get that but way to pricey. I have to build two of these and originally I was going for a budget build and added 200 for each build.

I agree with those, they also come in other colors.
