New Computer Case.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Was just wondering, I currently have an Antec 900, which I suppose is a medium sized case..

I'm looking to go for a larger case to fix in a newly acquired graphics card (AMD 6950) that my friend has given me (Danny1107). It fits into my case, but only slightly with a little bit of nip and tuck.

I'm looking for one that stands out, aka quite bright colors, not just boring and one type of color kind of thing if you get me.. All though, I will be willing to have a more "bog standard" case, as I can gladly spraypaint it how I'd like to.

In the future I plan on upgrading pretty much everything and going into a crossfire ASUS 7000 Series Graphics Cards.

Thanks for your help in advance!

-Nick.

I personally like full tower cases as they are huge but you will never run out of room, here are some good, more interesting looking ones that won't break the bank.

if you want something that stands out with some color thumb.gif

or you can grab a Midi R2 and throw some color on the inside via cable sleeving and you could always paint the grill areas to match.

anything big and flashy = HAF series or NZXT phantom series
