DIY HD HTPC Extravaganza - Part 1: The Cases

Antec Overture II-EC: Cheap Looking Exterior

The front panel of this $100-105 HTPC case is made of what looks like cheap plastic. This gives the case an unflattering look that isn't really suited to being in a living or family room. As an enclosure for an office PC, the Overture II-EC is perfectly fine, because its strengths lie mostly in its ease of build-out for a computer system.
