While many gamers would opt for a performance laptop if travelling a lot, the draw of a PC is always there. You can get better cooling, use higher performance components, and thereís the option to upgrade the system yourself.
At under $70 this case is a bargain if portability is high on your list of must-haves. If you just want a performance rig sitting under your desk then a larger case with more colling options is the better option. Even so, if you have limited space for a PC the Vulcan may still be a good choice.
Reviews of the case are already appearing around the web with 3dGameMan
, and Legit Reviews
all rating it favorably.
