Help me choose...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well i am looking at a new build and i have finally narrowed the choice down to 3 choices but now i cant decide.

Its between:

- Cm 690 II Advanced - window ($129) or without ($115)
- Antec 902 V3 - ($139)
- Antec Dark Fleet DF-35 ($119) (leaning towards this one due to the White LED's)
- All $AUD

I like all 3 but cant choose. This will be my first build and i am looking for which one has the best noob factor (installation wise) and room for further additions.

I know this may turn into a "I have this case discussion' but any help here would be great. Even suggestions of other cases would be great as well.

Thanks.

I enjoy my CM 690 II advanced, it has everything for a newbie. Looking at the Antec one's just consider the number of external bay's, what if you want a card reader in the future, a fan controller or anything else.

You could also consider CM's HAF series, from PCCG the 922 & 912 are cheaper.
