recomend me a case

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a new case. Something big, with a lot of space for cooling and cable management. I dont want to go huge, i dont think i want a TT armor.

i want something that will fit a BT if i get one, and something that wont fill up with dust. (if possible)

I was looking at the Antec 900 i can get for about 90$ anyothers that are good? I dont need anything flashy because it sits in my desk i just want to keep it cool and clean.

Also, something without a front door because my current case's front door does not close because of my X-fIs front panel.

Check the DVI out connector on your VGA card. The 900 had some issues with some cards not fitting. Sorry I don't recall which cards.

The P180 is a great case, but wire management can be a pain.

How about any Lian Li:

Superlative craftsmanship.

i would recommend going to newegg and browsing around for a FULL TOWER case that is appealing to you in its looks. Read reviews and debate the prices for yourself. Full Towers are big with lots of room and are known to be very cool with the proper equipment. Cons to full tower- heavy, cables sometimes not long enough to get where they need to be. depending on your budget her are some cool lookin and reliable cases

I was interested in this same case before but after researching about it a considerable amount of people reviewed it as having very small workspace and theres also a known problem about the pci slot at the back where DVI cables don't fit correctly (that can be modded though i suppose). So if you're looking for something big and having a lot of space i wouldnt recommend this case. Although i do like how this case looks ^ ^
