I really like the ATC-610 case.  In my entertainment center, it looks 
like a standard piece of stereo equipment.  I can't find the atc-610 for 
sale anymore, but they do have the 620 
(http://www.directron.com/atc620.html).  Only diff is the 620 is a steel 
case (and about $30 cheaper), and the 610 is aluminium.

The one thing I do not like about the case is you can't get to both 
sides of your add-on's to screw them down tightly.  This really only 
matters if you put in a lcd display w/ buttons on it.

I would concur, I'm going to order another stick of 256, wish I had just 
paid the extra couple of bucks for 512 when I bought my mem last year.


Pinky, Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I think so, Brain, but where are we going to get latex gloves, a 
swimming pool filled with vaseline and a herd of yaks at THIS time of night?
