A real eye catcher

The MGE XG Dragon demands your attention.  Available in several different colors, it also gives you a choice.  Our review unit was black, and with the blue LED lighting, and the front LCD panel offers a very sleek and stylish look.  At just over 500mm tall and weighing in at just over ten pounds, this case is also very light and small enough to be taken and shown off at a LAN party.
