NEED HELP !! What is the best case for this configuration and a little help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can somebody help me to choose a case for my new PC,i finished putting all configuration, but the case annoys me the most.Here is the configuration

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
Motherboard: GigaByte 870A-UD3
Memory: 4GB Kingston 1333 MHz
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
Optical Drive: DVD+-RW Samsung SH-S222AB SATA
PSU: Chieftec CTG-600-80P, 600W
Hard Disk: 1TB Samsung HD103SJ, 7200RPM, 32 MB, F3
Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+

Here are some questions which i hope you can help me with.

1) What is the good case for this configuration for around 50€ that can my GPU fit which is 10.5 inches.

2) Is my GPU good ? I will be playing only GTA IV, GTA San Andreas, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare everything maxed out on 1920x1080 resolution with maximal 2x of Anti Aliasing.Is it good to play these games smoothly ?

3) With my CPU i get also stock cooler, so should i even buy a Hyper 212+ ? I plan on OC-ing later after a year or two.

4) Will my motherboard come with a onboard sound ?

5) Is it good enough 4GB of RAM for gaming ?

6) Will my CPU Bottleneck my GPU ?

7) Is 1TB enough for games , or should i buy only 500 GB ?

8) Is 600W enough for this configuration ?

9) Should i get a SATA (this one) or an ATA optical drive ?

10) This is optional question, you can answer it if you want to
Should i get Fraps or PlayClaw

Please help as much as you know It would be very appreciating.
Thanks

1) Cooler Master HAF 912.
2) Yes, it'll be fine. If you can afford it, a 6950 2GB might be more "future-proof".
3) Yes, buy the 212+. Also, there's no point waiting to overclock. You should be able to hit 3.8Ghz fairly easily with some basic research and experimenting.
4) Yes.
5) Yes, but RAM is cheap, so getting 8GB isn't a bad idea.
6) No.
7) 1TB is a good choice.
8) Yes, but I might look for a more reputable unit. There should be a thread in the Power Supply section with some suggestions.
9) SATA, of course.
10) FRAPS, I suppose. Do you plan on buying the full version for recording?

1. Depends on your budget
best case at ~$35: NZXT GAMA
best case at $50: NZXT M59
best case at ~$75: Lancool K58W, CM Storm Scout, or that other Xigmatek case
best case at higher: Lancool K62, NZXT TEMPEST EVO
2. GPU is fine
3. Thermaltake Contac 30 and Xigmatek GAIA are both better options than the 212+ for the same price
4. It should
5. 4GB is enough for most everyone unless you run RAM-intensive tasks like me
6. It is fine
7. Depends on how many games you have and what space they take up. You do the math.
8. It is fine for the single GPU operation
9. SATA preferably but I'd say it wouldn't matter hugely
10. I've used FRAPs, not sure what the other one is though
