In the market for new case.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Full-tower or mid-tower, not too picky about that. I do prefer mid-tower though because it fits easier under my desk. Here is what I do need:
  • at least THREE 5.25" bays
  • at least THREE 3.5" bays
  • 3.5" bay for front I/O or 5.25" adapter for front I/O
  • at least ONE fan in front
  • at least ONE fan in rear
  • can fit TUNIQ Tower 120 and GTX 260 Core 216

Other than the above I don't mind what it has. Max budget is $60.

I was thinking about the Antec Three Hundred and it's on sale today for $55. I can purchased from the OCN Marketplace as well so if you're selling one that meets the criteria let me know.

Thanks in advance.

It's a $30 difference between those two (with shipping), not sure where you got $10, haha. I do like that HAF 912 though.

That's a nice one too. Can you install a fan in the front for intake?

the haf is good too. i personally would recommend the 690 II Advanced. more than what you need so you can upgrade in the future.

For a good budget case that can suit your needs, the NZXT M59 is a decent choice.
