Which case should I get??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Just a quick question for my HTPC build.

Im tossing up between these two cases:

Antec NSK 2480 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-034-_-Product

Antec Minuet 350 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=minuet%20350

At this point in time Im just going to be running onboard graphics (AsRock 880GMH with HD4250) but may put in a low profile card or a full sized one depending on the case, and if I have the urge to game on it.

Any help to make my decision easier would be great!

The NSK has an extra 5.25" and 3.5" drive bay, and also has a higher capacity PSU. I believe the Minuet would be quieter, and also has a more efficient (80plus) PSU. Your choice depends entirely on whether you want more than one hard drive and optical drive.

Also, the NSK is out of stock and the Minuet is more visually appealing.

Thanks mate, I'm more leaning towards the minuet. I'm not buying from newegg, they don't ship to australia that was for a reference.

I'm going to put in a 2TB drive so that should be heaps, I think it looks better aswell.
