need help choosing a good case (<$70)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
ok well i had this in mind because it looks FREAKIN SWEET and it has good reviews
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811166010
only bad thing is they say u have to purchase fans seperate? what kind of fans would i need and how much are they :S
i would really like to have a nice case that is transparent on at least one side, maybe with a few LEDs
suggestions please
also keep in mind this is my mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130484
thats a full size mobo right? so it wont be supported by mid-tower cases? (im stupid)
edit: this one looks good
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144151
it says it supports ATX and micro ATX, but it says fits up to 11" x 12", and the mobo i have says the dimensions are 12" 9.5" , im hoping those are flip flopped? or can i not use mid tower cases :S

Here is a link to a case I just bought for my new rig. It comes with two fans. A 80 mm on the window and a 120mm in the rear. The airflow is superb. Definitely not a bad case for the price.

If you just want to be 'cool' (btw a chick doesnt care about your comp case...trust me lol) . Then get wahtever you want , honestly your opinion should matter more than any of ours.

If you are aiming at an Overclocking case, check out any case with a SIDE PORT. This will also allow for you having a more QUIET comp (at least when you aren't gaming) , chicks dig quiet.

Rosewill makes a very nice case thats perty and quiet and has a side port. I have the older model, but the model they sell ( almost the same as mine) works equally well. Trust me, any case with a side port, you will love for overclocking since you dont have to have a 60cfm 5000000db fan blowing on ur processor all the time.
+ you might get some chicks who dont say "damn ur comp is so loud"

I have to agree that women like quiet....my girlfriend once told me "What's that sound" I was like " My computer"....she goes "Can you turn it off, it's annoying"

Quiet is alwasy better
