Need a case...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
As I haven't build a computer before I was wondering if someone could suggest a case, which would fit 2 6870s and cost around 70-100€/100-130$. Any additional advice/comments regarding hardware would be awesome.

Setup:
CPU: Intel core i5 2500K [194.25 €/277.00$]
HDD: WD Caviar Blue 500GB 7200RPM 6Gb/s [33.00 €/47.06$]
GPU: ASUS HD6870 DIRECTCU PCI-E 1GB [181.15 €/258.32$](X2as I get the money for it)
RAM: G.Skill 1600 Mhz Sniper 2 x 4GB 9-9-9-24 1.5V [61.60 €/87.84$]
OD: SAMSUNG SH-222 [14.75 €/21.03$]
MOBO: ASUS P8P67 LE B3 [118.85 €/169.48$]
PSU: CORSAIR GS PSU 700W [91.20 €/130.05$]

You could try the xigmatek utgard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811815007 it comes in mesh or solid side pannels too. A lot of people on this forum like the haf 922, you should look at the 912 aswell. Some also swear by the cm 690 ii. If you can get the RV03 for your budget you might like that for cooling power. Do you have a preference in terms of windowed sides?

I would definitely recommend the NZXT Phantom, it has many color choices, customizable, and u can pack **** loads of stuff in it.

its 10$ above your price range but you wont be disappointed....plus, its good for a first build as its spacious and there's good wire management to keep it uncluttered.

The phantom is a great full tower, especially for the price. Would you like a full tower or a mid tower?

The lancools are an excelent options, you might want a case with a side air duct if performance os your only concern.

What's your location? Most of the parts can be found MUCH cheaper than what you posted.
