post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

In the process of researching a whole new computer for video editing. I have got all the hardware sorted just stuck on what case would be best, dont want to spend more that $150 as I have spend most my budget on the inside.

At the moment the following specs are:

i5 2500k
Z68X-UD4
Vertex 2 60GB SSD
2x Caviar Black 1TB SATA 3 HDD
LG BLURAY/CD/DVD Writer
G.Skill 4GB Kit DDR3-1600
GA GTX570
Cooler Master GX 750W

Any feed back on specs are welcome too.

Cheers

Have been recomended an NZXT H2.
Looking for a case that has a USB 3.0 and a IEEE in the front

Raven RV02E or FT02. btw, CM GX series PSU's are crap, don't get it.

That motherboard is an ATX form factor, which means that any ATX case should fit it.
Go onto newegg and type in ATX case and you will get a lot of answers.

From there, is mostly about aesthetics and airflow, id say look at the HAF series by coolermaster.

Thanks for the quick responses guys, think i might go for the Coolermaster RC692 Advanced II.

The others are pretty hard to get here in Aus from the local places.

Thanks again

Good choice.

And change that PSU.

This would suffice:

Plus, if you're video editing, you should look into the 2600K, it will speed up your render / encoding times.

While that is a great powersupply you can get one that is cheaper and has the same performance for much less. I would recommend the XFX 650 because it is modualr as well and is based off of the same Sea Sonic platform that the Corsair TX650V2 is based off of. It is a great power supply and much cheaper than the HX series. It is $88.99 and has a MIR making it $68.99 AMIR.
