Need a New Case

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well Hello All,

I am looking for case. I have a GA-MA790GP-DS4H and a HD 4870, plus a ZALMAN CNPS9700.. All of these things are just a bit big.. But I want a small case like a DD - Torture Rack, or a Antec Skeleton, I have about $140-165 I can spend this includeds the shipping as well...

I wouldn't mind a Antec 1200, but I realy want something that shows off all my parts. Plus keeps temps very very very cool . So if anyone has any ideas please give them to me.. I need a new case by X-Mas

I'd definitely choose the Torture rack over the Antec skeleton.

Marin here owns a Torture rack, you should check out his pictures of it.

And here is why you should not get an Antec Skeleton:

If you want a tower, I highly recommend the CM690. I modded mine with a side panel window:

DD TortureRack for sure. A modded CM690 would also be a good choice, as would a modded P182.
