    I dont seem to be able to find a section on here where people are buying and selling. I am currently looking to obtain a G5 case for a non computer build project. Preferably for free or as little as possible. It does not need to be in immaculate condition, but the side door should work properly. No internals needed. Anyone know where I can find such a thing?

    You have to have made 250 or 500 (I forget which) posts in order to be granted access to the buy/sell section.

    If you are in the U.S. check your local craigslist, you'll save on shipping and the handles on those cases frequently get damaged in shipping anyway.

    Odds of finding one for free are not great but cheap, non-working, you can find those.

    Read the welcome sticky,
    minimum of 250 posts and 180 day membership.
    Appears you might be a few days short.

    Thanks for the followup. I will try the craigslist idea too. I know I have been a member for way longer than 180 days, but I guess my post count may be low.

    Cheers!

    Craigslist is by far the best/easiest option. I've acquired 3 that way, for very cheap/nothing. Currently using 2 pressed together with a plank on top as a nightstand.
