    Hello folks,
    I am new here. Do they sell cases like they have at Alienware ?

    I tried many sites, but none come as close to alienware cases.

    thanks

    as far as i am aware you can only buy alienware cases from alienware when u buy a computer system.... they dont sell them on there own....
    u might wanna try ebay... someone might be selling one there...

    and like you said there are many alien looking cases out but dont come close to alienware....

    I'm sure you can get something closeish although the paint job would have to be your own doing most likely.

    Not that this really helps but the computer shop around the corner from my house has them, or something amazingly like them.

    also try looking for a Raidmax Samurai 908 Gaming Tower Case they are kind of like them, especially with alittle bit of modding to take the thing off the door.

    I actually find alienware cases somewhat good looking. However i am also looking into other case options as well. As for ebay, they don't sell cases; only proper machines.

    i love my coolermaster atc-110, they dont make it anymore seriously nice case though had it like 2 years now, if i were you i would go for a really good quality aluminium case. You'll be paying more than for a steel and plastic case like alienware cases, but they are much nicer. Nicer to touch to lol feels and looks like quality.

    The case is ok, I am actually looking for a contemporary, simple and not so fancy case.

    If you ever do find a real alienware case for sale expect to pay a high price for it. I actually contacted them at one stage as I too wanted one of thier cases but their only willing to sell full systems.

    Word of warning. Alienware PC's are a favourite target of the fraudsters on Ebay, so be careful if you do find a cheap one going.

    :eyebrow: I was disagreeing with you, Vento 3600 != alienware. != means does not equal (unless im mistaken, this wouldn't be the first time).
