so I know expasion is one thing you'll look for, what else?
is alot of it looks?
what about these different fan options?
should you get one with a psu already installed?
and my BIG ONE, how do you know which mobo will adapted to the case?
FEEL FREE TO ADD IN OTHER INTEREST I'M NOT THINKING OF
For audio I would look for a case that keeps your rig's decibels down as much
as possible. P180 is a great selection because of its reinforced panels and
high build quality and very quiet built in Antec fans.
It is almost always a good idea to purchase your PSU separately, because a
PSU that comes with a case is usually a stock and low quality - and a good
performing PSU is the heartbeat of your system - and if your heartbeat
ain't good, your whole system will suffer. A bad PSU can destroy the rest
of your rig's components and can cause all sorts of headaches. Also
consider how quiet your PSU is. The Seasonic 600 is a quiet PSU.
I would purchase a fanless designed mobo - again to keep
your decibels down. There are a number of them out there including the
mobo I have: the a8n-sli premium - however that is a bit high-end and you
could spend less.
I guess I'm mentioning components I have in my own rig
because my own build goal was to have a high performance but quiet rig.
