Alright guys. Some advice required. Building myself a gaming pc from scratch.
Need some thing that will fit a HD5970 if I go for one of those?

What are good cases?

Antec 902/1200 I prefer the 902 because its cheaper

The coolermaster CM690.

A few people go with the corsair obsidion 800. But I feel that to be an obscene amount to spend on a case.

FF7 is epic

Can't go wrong with the HAF 932, plenty of room for a 5970, in fact you'll have room behind it, plus a nice HUGE fan blowing both at the back and side of the card, I love that case. My temps are AMAZING, 4GHz Phenom II with a Mugen 2, 40C load temps.

If your on a budget consider this case. It has many great features found on higher priced cases, great cable management, black inside and out, and cheap cheap cheap. ($30 after rebate) I have a pc in one of these cases and have no complaints. You can mount 2x140mm fans to the topand 2 fans to the side door. Also has plenty of room for a huge cpu cooler


Probably one of the best bang for buck case you can get imo

Yea I was looking at the Antec 1200 or the HAF 932. They are the best two then.
Antec is a little more expensive @€120 and the HAF is €100.

Something about the HAF I don't like though, cannot quite put my finger on it. Cheers for the replies guys.
