Best full tower gaming case for around $200?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
What's the best full tower gaming case for around $200? I'm willing to spend more if the case is really worth it. I'm looking for:
-Good airflow, I plan to game a lot with this computer.
-Lots of space, I plan to run SLI and have 2-3 SSDs/HDDs.

I'd Say the Corsair 650D or the Cooler Master HAF X I personally have the HAF X, but kinda wish I'd got the Corsair. thumb.gif

The 650D is a midtower though and he wants a full tower. I have the HAF X and It is a great case. A lot of features, looks nice imo, great airflow, etc... I would have to say the only downside is the size so it is troublesome bringing it places. If your computer stays in one place all the time though I would definitely go for the HAF X, I love it smile.gif

I had a nzxt phantom for about 6 months i absolutely loved it. But, i carried my case around a lot and it was HUGE so i decided to get a smaller one. Anyways, it had great airflow and the cable management was superb. I would say get a white one with oj led's and put a side window on it. That would look sick!! thumb.gif

How does the NZXT Switch 810 compare with the HAF X?

The Phantom does look amazing, but I'd rather take performance over looks when it comes to cases.

Currently leaning toward the HAF X, are there any better alternatives?

If your primary goal is playing on monitor then HAF X. Good airflow, built like a tank, lots of space.
If you want to pair your pc with hdtv and game on it like me, then NZXT Phantom(Black-Orange). High gloss finish makes it look awesome with hdtv and receiver. Lots of space and good airflow. Build quality is not like haf x but looks better (imho).
