Getting a new case

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've been browsing the forums and newegg and im looking at this->
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811125475 .

Im trying to get rid of my eMachine case(i started with eMachine). Im looking for something thats not that expensive but gets good airflow as im getting a ASUS A8N-SLI Premium to go with it. The case above looks like it should fit my needs and has room for modding later. Would eventually like to put a side 80mm fan and a front 120mm intake fan and ill probably throw in another 7900gt when the time comes.

So is this a good case to start with? Im also going to put in a ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro cpu fan as i need to upgrade from stock.

Thanks ahead

And as long as you NEVER touch it with uncovered fingers, it will look awesome...

You hear a lot about getting 120mm fans over the 80mm. The case in question has 2 80mm exhaust fans. They can get loud. When I put my rig together, I skipped getting a new case, cause I had one sitting around. It's got 2 80mm for exhaust, and for me it's worked flawlessly, however the noise level is quite high. Make sure if you want to use 120mm fans, there's enough room to fit one.
