Welcome texicus! Like chriskaz said, the XPS case does have a snazzy look to it, though my next case will be something with better cooling and general fit/features to it. But it's been a good investment over the years.
A big "hats off" to davbow for getting this place going (and maintaining it!) and for our resident gurus and other helpful folks for their insightful advice and creative ideas.
@ chriskaz--the retro blue box is reserved for "The Doctor" and his jelly babies...wouldn't it be nice if our cases were as big on the inside?
