Hi all,

I'm really interested in pimping out my xbox by taking out the motherboard and controller ports and putting them all into a clear ghost case from amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Original-GhostCase-Kit-Crystal-Clear/dp/B007QUD5EA

They're selling it for $20. It's $5 more expensive than this site:

http://www.ghostcase.com/xbox/ghost-case-crystal-clear-xbox.html

I prefer buying off amazon with a credit card because I trust the transactions on there. I have no idea about the second site. Anyone have any recommendations. Or as an alternative does any have a spare they'd be willing to sell perhaps?

What is a reasonable price for the case online? Is $20 a rip off?

I assume installing the motherboard and controller ports fan etc. only requires unscrewing the bits in the motherboard lifting it out and screwing it into the ghost case?

Thanks for the advice all

Be very careful buying cases. The good ones are very rare and usualy cost a lot. Most you see are shitty knockoffs. Use very brittle plastic that you drop a hair on and it breaks. Improper sizing, screw holes dont line up etc.

Llama.com was the best place I came across for legit ghostcases and not bullshit knockoffs.

Yeah that Llama.com site looks like a real nice hobbyist resource site, but its xbox page appears to have not been updated since 2010!

I definitely don't want to buy a knockoff case with improper dimensions, but when I looked at Llama.com the only case they seem to be offering is the black OEM one for $25.

Obviously people aren't making newer ones, so I'm guessing the quality cases are going to be more expensive by default. I'm willing to pay a little more, but it's hard to know the quality unless I had it in my own two hands.

I know what you mean about improper sizing, I bought some component cables from amazon and I definitely have to force them into my xbox

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Component-Cable-Bulk-Packaging/dp/B000E61G4O/ref=pd_rhf_cr_s_cp_2_M4NZ

But maybe it's normal for hobbyist parts to not fit perfectly. I don't know how that generally goes.

What has been the experience for most people with alternate console cases? Do they tend to fit well? (knockoff or not)
