Those are all pretty cool cases. Personally, I've always been a fan on Lian-Li. Really good quality for a great price.

As for PSU, can't go wrong with a Corsair. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012&Tpk=hx650

As for the case I would say the fractal but that's kinda because their cases are just so sexy!

There is also this Lian Li case

I have HX750 and so far it's been good to me. The AX750 is a little bit higher quality than the HX, AFAIK

both of those PSU's are top of the line. you cant go wrong with either so just pick whichever is cheaper or on sale.
post #7 of 15

between those 3 choices, you'll have the most flexibility with the arc midi. the arc isn't the greatest, but it offers the best option if you ever decide to go liquid. even something as simple as a H100 would do better on the midi.
post #8 of 15
Go for the Arc Midi. It's a great cheap case.
post #9 of 15
you really cant go wrong with a good silverstone or Lian li Aluminum case.

at 100-150 price point theres a lot of selection. im assuming mid tower and not full right?

Some of the older lian Li V series are a bit hard to find.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112137 This one has been one of my favs for years.
post #10 of 15
from his selection, i'm assuming he's trying to save a few bucks. if he can bump his budget up some, the RV02-E would be his best option for price/performance ratio on air cooling. if he wants to keep liquid an option, then the arc midi is still the strongest performer on price/performance ratio.
