Need case w/ PSU for cutting edge gaming. Quiet, no overclocking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

I like quiet cases, I'm not going to do any overclocking, just leaving everything stock.

I have a Dell optiplex 7020 with a 3.6GHZ I7 processor, 8gb ram
It is a Small Form Factor PC which I want to convert to a normal PC. This means I will have to ditch the case and the motherboard.

I am going to buy a cutting edge video card, just got the BenQ XL2730Z and will be looking for a Freesync high end card.


Looking at cases, there are a zillion options. Any recommendations for a good case w/ power supply, quiet, but can do cutting edge gaming?

thanks

Sounds like you are after a knife tongue.gif

Do you have a budget?

What motherboard did it have? Unless its some mITX board with no PCIe slot, you should be able to make use of it for now.

If you are not worried about the size of the case, I'd say you have quite a lot of options that will result in decently quiet operation as well as good heat removal. Probably more important to make good fan choice.
