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?
