A computer case protects your computer from you, and protects you from your computer. It can even make your computer appear to know what it's doing. Learn what to look for in a computer case.

How to Choose a Computer Case Computer-Case-AC-1-

Step 1
Style: Look at as many cases as possible before buying. In general, better looking cases are more expensive, although I've found a lot of good-looking cheap cases as well.

Step 2
CD/DVD Drive: The bigger the case, the more you can install.

Step 3
Fans: They can be on the sides, front, back, and of sizes 80mm and 120mm. In general, the more fans, the cooler the case, and the longer your computer will last.

Step 4
Floppy Drive: If you want one, make sure the case includes a 3.5" external drive bay.

Step 5
Power Supply: Some cases come with power supplies. This can be convenient because you don't have to install one yourself. This can also be bad if it doesn't provide enough wattage to operate your computer. If you're running a high-end video card and CPU, make sure the power supply can supply enough power.

Step 6
Front Ports: USB, IEEE Firewire (used in some devices, similar to USB), audio in (for microphone), and audio out (for headphones) are common.

Step 7
Motherboard: If you already have a motherboard chosen, make sure the case supports it. The larger the case, the more working room you'll have inside for upgrades, and the cooler your computer will run. Large cases also take up a lot of space.
