help deciding case for my office workstation

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a budget of $50 for my office workstation case so if you guys know a great case for a tight budget.
The case will house an LGA 1155 build with either HD6850 or HD6950


$34 Fractal Core 1000
http://www.fractal-design.com/?view=product&category=2&prod=61
Pros: front intake fan, small and easy to carry home on weekends
471


$41 NZXT Source 210
http://www.nzxt.com/new/products/classic_series/source_210
Pros: it looks sick, and has cable management
450


$38 Aerocool VS4
http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php/products/chassis/30-pgsv/121-vs4w
Pros: excellent air cooling and can surely fit my 6950
550

NZXT 210.

Looks to have good cable management and can have good airflow if you add in the optional front fans. looks great.

Would probably need to remove the HDD bay to fit a 6950

If one doesn't mind a top mounted PSU, otherwise a nice looking case IMO. smile.gif
