New Lan Party Build

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So Far I've built 3 computers, 2 for friends and one for myself.. Well now I'm tired of lugging my very heavy build around for lan parties. Anyone got any suggestions for a sturdy case with a handle or something for easy moving? Lighter the better, doesn't HAVE to be flashy

Depends on what games you guyz play.

Its pretty common to grab an HTPC case. However no sli or crossfire.

1 hard drive. and dont overclock.

And keep ram sticks to a minimum.

If ou only want 2 gig of ram .. buy 1 stick of 2 gig.

I've always liked this micro atx case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146044

Seems like it may provide better cooling than most others I have seen, only down side is- no handle, although I guess you could buy some handles to put on top or something

Go for a Micro-ATX case, here's a couple good ones (the Apevia case needs a different PSU of course, and get new fans for the Thermaltake)

That case linked above looks nice as well.

Your build turned out really nice!

As for your question, are you looking for a lanbox to fit all your current system spec components?

Ericeod! Ahh I missed you man~! You don't return m PNS ... No this wil be a budget build.. kinda... I got a Q6600 Go Stepper I'll be using. Want to push it to at least 3.0ghz, so I'll need some kind of space but I want the build to be easily moved. Like a Light case etc,,, A handle for easy transport type of thing...

.. You building a new one?

Yeah, I'm switching to the Maximus Extreme, DDR3, an 8800GT and a Q6700 (with a Detek Fusion). I wont be putting it together for a few weeks since finals are coming up, so I am waiting patiently.
