    I was originally set on grabbing the Cooler Master Elite 361, but I have to admit I like the Lian Li PC-V355B as well. It has a nice, simple look, has front USB 3.0 ports, and would fit on my desk better. Is the extra $100 really worth it? One of my concerns is PSU support; one review of the case I read showed a lot of bending going on with a 700W ATX power supply mounted. I have an SFX power supply in mind (ST45SF-G) but I don't know how much better it would fare. Is there a different option that would possibly work as well/better?

    Strange, the version of the Elite 361 without the $10 el-cheapo power supply has disappeared from Newegg and Amazon.

    The ST45SF-G arrived today and I have to admit, I don't think it will pose any kind of problem for the Lian Li case. Although, I may end up going with the PC-V353 instead.

    Edit: Or maybe not. $160 is a bit much.
