Looking for a new case (Budget 200 bucks)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Heylo friends! I am soon planning on expanding to another GTX 580 soon, but my current one is reaching temperatures of about 90-100 on load as it is, and I don't even know if I can fit another on my case! The main culprit for the temperature I feel, has to be the case. It is just so cluttered, to be frank. Not in terms of wires oh no, but just in general space. My 580 is so close to my Power supply it is crazy, and therefore the cared doesn't have sufficient airflow!

I am then looking for a case that fits a 200 dollar budget. In terms of just functionality and quality, (apathetic about looks) which is the best case that fits my budget?

Thank you guys !

so you want to be able fit 2 gtx 580 later in the future? Are you going just stick with air cooling? I would recommend the haf x/haf 932 it might be a generic answer but there reasons why it recommended it has tons of room and great for what it worth.

Have you considered the HAF series?

It's a very popular choice and it seems like a good case for the money.

I would recommend any of these cases. Here is the link.
Great cable managment
Looks good!
Plenty of room for your gtx 580
Room for upgrade
Flipped power supply so the fan can suck air from the bottom of the case
Etc...

I hope this helped. Otherwise you can also get the Antec 900. I have the antec 900 and I really like it. It keeps my 5850 below 60C and it kept my gts 250 below 70C.

Not if you do a little cutting... I wasn't talking about the antec 900 having good cable managment because I know that isn't true stock. When it is modded it has great cable managment.

i went from a haf 922 to a 932, and this thing has a rediculous amount of space. Room for an extra thick radiator with push pull fans up top, xl and extended atx motherboards, several video cards.

Haf932 is an awesome case. Newegg has them with free shipping every now and then.
