Need a new gaming case for around $100 CAD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am upgrading my PC and instead of trying to sell off my old parts individually I figured I would sell it as a whole and buy everything new.

My budget is around $100 CAD for a new case.
-It is for gaming
-Would like it to be fairly spacious so I can comfortably SLI a pair of GTX 460
-Will be all Air cooling in my rig
-Looks are important (More LEDs means more speed, right?)

I don't feel like ordering it online and paying/waiting from shipping, so my case will have to be bought from here:

Memory Express

I was thinking of either an Antec 600 or 900 (I currently use an Antec 300, while it does fit my GTX 460, it just barely does)

Thank you for your help!

Out of those, I'd say the HAF 922.

That is actually just what I was looking at. Will it comfortably fit 2 GTX 460's in it?

As said above, the HAF 922 is probably your best option, but it depends how keen you are on the looks. I, personally, don't like the looks and would go with the 900.

Storm Scout will fit 2 GTX 460's. It looks good too. Also a steel reinforced carry handle. 140mm intake/exhaust fans, two have red LED's and you can switch the LED's off if you wish. Fan filters, bottom mounted powersupply space (with a dust filter)

Tool-less drive installation is also very handy.

Very good cable management also. Sidepanel can take two 120mm fans

You can also fit a Coolermaster V10 into it, if you wanted to, so it takes large coolers.

Check the club for more info etc in my signature.

What do you mean? There is scientific proof, more LED's equates to better gameplay.

But on a serious note, I do like the looks of the HAF 922, the storm scout isn't bad either, but I think I will enjoy the extra space on the inside in the HAF 922 over the storm.

I will most likely pick up the HAF 922

The CM 690 II was at 80$ during boxing day (and the 600t was 100$). You should have bought it during that time.
But for now, the HAF 922 and the storm scout. They are the only one that worth it at memoryexpress.
