HTPC Case Round-Up

Tom's Hardware has collected nearly all the quality HTPC cases on the market and conducted a shootout of sorts to see which case is the best choice for building a new Home Theater PC. Here, the gang analyze a collection of cases that range in size from dimunitive and compact to absolutely monolithic. From relative bargains to some painfully pricey models, there is surely a case to fill nearly any need a budding HTPC user could have.

The last time we took a crack at building a Home Theater PC (HTPC), we opted for a slimline case from Hiper.

Since then, numerous other vendors have introduced new cases designed specifically for Home Theater PC (HTPC) use, so we thought it was time to build another HTPC!
