Which Case for my Birthday?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Well, im turning 30 next month (yes im old ) and i asked for a new case from my girlfriend to replace my antec 902..all parts to go in it are in my sig..most likely getting an ssd for my birthday as well (might be a present to myself lol)

also keep in mind the 5850 i have for size...

The only real requirement i have is blue fans (to match the gelid wing 12 blue led fans i just bought for push/pull on my h50)

Update: budget is $150 - 175

Some cases that im liking so far:

CM Storm Sniper:

CM 690 II Advanced:

IF you don't mind spending a little extra for a window then http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119215would probably be the best case for the money.
