Budget folding rig case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, so heres the skinny:
I will basically be building a new rig by the time I finish upgrading my 'old' one, so I decided that I wouldn't mind setting aside around $500 to create a dedicated folding rig. ($500 should be able to get me 3 GTS 450's, a power supply and a case, fans and a decent cpu cooler)
I have a V1 P6T Deluxe, an i7 920 C0, and 12gb of G.Skill DDR3-1600 CL9 memory (that runs stable at 8-8-8-21-2T @4.0ghz with the processor and motherboard, however will not run stable with the current processor/motherboard)
Whats a good, relatively inexpensive ATX case that would hold all of this and keep it cool? I usually water cool stuff but liquid cooling on a dedicated folding rig would be kinda expensive over time.

The Cooler Master 690 II is a great ATX case that should be perfect for your needs. It comes in a basic edition and an advanced edition.
