Cheap case deals at Newegg, each one of these is $10 after rebate card:

I like the first one because it has a window and two sets of two USB ports (2x3.0, 2x2.0), but the second one has somewhat better cooling possibilities.

NICE, I might have to snag one of those so I can put my ol' Z68 Micro ATX board in there and make a desktop for Mario.

At the moment I'm looking for a delta 3D printer with either a 3 in 1 out or 5 in 1 out extrusion head, auto-leveling, and a heated build plate. I don't want to get something that would need to be modified to support that, I want that out of the box, even if assembly is required.

Getting ready to put together a second personal rig for me. This is a landmark occasion, I don't think in 25+ years of being in computers I've ever actually owned two machines for personal use. At least not two fairly powerful ones. Getting ready to build this:

Core i5 2500k
Dell Vostro 260 / Inspiron 620 motherboard (It's the only cheap mATX 1155 board I could get hold of)
2x4GB DDR3
1x 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD
1x 2TB Seagate mechanical HDD
Either a Geforce GTX 780 or a GTX 660
Either a PCIE Sound Blaster Z, or a PCIE Sound Blaster X-Fi
Thermaltake Water 3.0 RGB 240 CLC / AIO cooler

All of this will go into another Thermaltake Core v21 chassis, just like my main rig. That way I can stack them on top of each other.

I will eventually need to get myself an HDMI switch or even a KVM to make full use of this setup. Like I said earlier I plan to offload video rendering duties to this second machine so I can free up the CPU and GPU on my main rig.

You do as far as I can figure out... the Plex app wants you to either get a Plex Pass or pay a separate fee in order to play stuff in the app. Without doing either of those it will only play for like 2 minutes and then kick you out of whatever video you're watching.
