Choosing your computer case is the first major step in you parts selection process for building your desktop.  When choosing your case there are many factors to take into account.

Some of the factors are solely aesthetic, while on the opposite end of the spectrum  some of the determining factors of the case are purely functional.

Let’s start with the functional properties.  It is easier to match aesthetics to function than to match the function to the aesthetics.

The first factor to analyze when deciding on a case is the size and orientation of the case.  Computer cases come in many shapes and sizes: they range from

mid-tower cases
full-tower computer casing
all-in-one units
Computer Case & Casing Functionality

The major differentiation factor of computer tower casing is the size of the case is what determines the availability of expansion room withing the computer.

Obviously, the larger the case the more room will be available for additional hardware upgrades in the future.

Many tower cases, whether they are full tower or mid tower computer cases, have easily accessible

USB ports, a
headphone jack, and a
microphone jack installed into the front of the case.

Some are located towards the bottom of the case, but some are located in the middle of the case or closer to the top of the case.  Based on where the CPU will be stored in location to the operator of the computer will determine which option is best for you to choose from.

After you have decided on the layout of your computer case, as far as the functionality aspects, the next step is to look at the aesthetics or the way the computer looks from the outside.

Today’s custom computer cases have so many visual differences that there is potential to create as many computer tower cases as there are people in the world.

When you are determining how you want your case to look, keep in mind

light displays,
‘chrome’ plating,
color of the case itself, and
whether or not you want to be able to view the inside of the case from any angle, if at all.

LED light displays are very common in tower casing and come in a variety of colors.  They are most commonly available in blue, green, or red, but they can also be found in purple, yellow, and orange.  However, it is much more difficult to find LED displays for computer cases in those colors so it may increase expenditure.  If that is not a factor then feel free to browse away at the less commonly found
