Will an Alienware case work with common setups?

I'm just wondering because I'm looking to get a new case real soon.

Which case?
#3 Posted by clyde46 (47468 posts) -
Modern ones? No, properly not. Unless you are handy with those power tools that is.

I heard x51 case can double or triple your performance over a custom case.

I don't see the point of doing so

Of course there is a point. Aesthetically, it's better than any other case I've seen.

Beauty is subjective. Personally I like the simplicity/minimalism of recent corsair cases.

i personnaly enjoy colors that compliment each other well across the case and a nice curved top such as a bitfenix colossus or an in-win griffin

Alien Cases look like crap they probably have bad airflow too :P

I like cases like Haf X,Nzxt Phantom and the cm 690 II nvidia edition

Even thats too much for me, simple lines like the carbide series is what I prefer.

Where are the complex lines on that? It's all straight edges on feet.

That really doesn't look good. I don't know why people think this looks bad:  it's sick.

The lack of fans alone is alarming. Airflow must be a nightmare with that case.

That looks crap compared to these three

Personally Alienware looks horrible. You know you need to get out more when you're buying a case for more money just for aesthetics, epecially Alienware.
#22 Posted by percech (5237 posts) -
I decided to go with this  It looks nice, it's roomy, it will work with any build and the amount people are asking for for the Alienware case is ridiculous.
#23 Posted by JohnF111 (14107 posts) -
I prefer a plain case, that's why I have an Antec 300 and my future cases will be most likely Fractal Designs.

I prefer plain cases well, but that Nvidia case is sweet looking.

I don't like Corsair cases. When I think simplicity, I think Fractal Design.

I guess taste is in the eyes of the beholder, but by no means do Alienware Cases look BAD. I don't know about quality inside and functionality, but outside they look very nice.

Google what the word "forum" means.

 

yes, but it's off topic. He asked for advice on alienware cases and then the discussion went from alienware cases to the styling which is completely subjective
it should have gone in the direction of cases that look like alienware cases
