Which case for this new system build? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
IMO there's no point in going to P182 from P180. Too much cash spent for too little. Unless you have a plexiglass side-pannel it's not worth the trouble. If you are smart and skilled you can tuck all the cables out of the way.

Totally not worth buying a new case when the old one looks better and only lacks some minimal, non-essential features. I've built dozens of systems back in my system engineer (guy that assembles PCs) days and I could always make a case tidy even if it never was designed for calbe management. All you need is a bunch of those plastic strips used to bunch cables together.

EDIT: It's your call but for that cash I'd buy more/better components.

Agree. You could also always cut some new holes with a hole-saw. You don't have that much to lose. Even so, IMO a new PC doesn't feel like a new PC if its not in a new case.
