Question- about to build a new system which case should I use?

About t build a new computer, since I find myself with a top on leftover RAM, 2 cases, hard drive (though only 1 SSD, might buy another one of those) an extra battery every wire imaginable, and a Titan V card. I'd just plan to use the card for torrents, coding games, etc..., and anything else that might possibly mess up my "good"computer. I have so, so much stuff left over from my last build, I'm actually embarrassed ro show ir since I look like a complete profligate idiot.
In any event, let me see if I can get a pic of the other case, squeeze it in there and see what toy all think is thew superior case. (It was the right way up before I loved it, don't know how to change it now that its's in the files to go up...)

Between the two, I would go with the Cougar case.

I just think the Thermaltake tower 900 looks like a redbull refrigerator.

The Cougar case is too generic borig looking

Thermaltake tower 900 is exactly as Fluxwaven mentioned about a redbull fridge.


if you want something like the Cougar I'll suggest something like this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...-240-_-Product

and since you mentioned Thermaltake they have a whole load of other nicer options to choose from, if you want Glass looks https://www.newegg.com/Thermaltake-C...bCat/ID-1379-7

I'm actually planing to get one of this in the near future https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811133362

I already own one of this in white https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811133330
and this with double Pedestal https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...9SIA8EF5V03053 +

Current project Upside Down S8 built log

depends if you want to save money or not. also what do you plan on putting in the new build? If this pc is just so you don't mess up your 'good' computer then I wouldnt spend too much on it and just use parts that costs less. otherwise I would buy upgrades for your current pc and then throw all the stuff into this new build.

I would skip the tower 900 unless you want to water cool with 2 big rads in the back of it.
