Need a Case...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
iv been hold off on this for a while now...
i thought the case should be the last thing on my to buy list since it has to be compatable with all the things i put in it.

my budget is less then $100 shipped...(with a power supply would be cool since i can just give it to a friend when i upgrade his video card)

so far im putting in..

750i EVGA
TRUE (or something big like it)
PC Power & Cooling 750w
just one HDD for now...

The CM 690 is a great case, but has no PSU.

The Antec 900 is popular too, but also has no psu.

The Raidmax Smilodon has a 500w psu, and is also a good case.

Antec 900 or CM 690 as said by tehpwnerofn00bs.

Just about any case will fit that gear... it's really a matter of preference and nice cooling capabilities...

The majority of people are going to suggest you either the Antec 900 ($80 after $40 MIR + $22 shipping) or the CM690 ($84+$20 shipping)

I would personally vouch for the CM690 as I believe it's more readily modifiable

to get a case w/ a DECENT PSU in it, you'll have to pay a bit more. SVC.com has the best shipping rate (especially on cases) around. (when there aren't the free shipping deals)
$8 shipping aint bad. (and it stays there even if you order more stuff too)

Here's the CM690 w/ a PSU (it's not $100 but it has a somewhat decent PSU)
Here's the CM690 w/o a PSU

The CM690 has very good airflow. Especially when you put some Yate Loons in there (which can be bought from SVC.com for like $4 a piece)

You made a typo, it's "500w of BS".
Pretty much all of their PSUs I checked have crappy specs typical for low quality/overrated junk and one with case has even voltage selection switch meaning it's even older design.
