Need a Case Recommendation
 
Setup:

Q9550
Asus P5e3 x48
ATI 4780x2

I need a case for this, and have no idea where to start.

Price and Cooling are my main concerns. I want it to keep the whole system cool (without using water) and I don't wanna pay alot for it.

Quiet would be nice as well. As would USB ports on the front (but that seems pretty standard these days)

I don't give a crap what it looks like fyi. Cheap, cools well and quiet if possible is all I care about.

Well, when you say cheap, what's your budget for a case?

shryke October 7, 2008 04:02 PM

$150 max I guess?

I'd be willing to go a bit higher if needed or if it's worth it.

NCIX.com - Buy Coolermaster Centurion 590 ATX Tower Case Black 9X5.25 1X3.5 4X3.5INT - RC-590 In Canada.

That is a WONDERFUL case.

I'd have to agree with that as well, as I've known a few friends that have used it. Another one which I've found to be quite quiet, if a bit cramped at times, but well worth the money is the antec P-180

The P180 is a decent case, but I find the door and front fan guards/grills extremely resistant and severely hinders airflow. Also once you get a bunch of stuff in there it gets cramped fast. Oh, and its HEAVY

Should keep it pretty cool, and im not too sure about how quiet it is. I dont really remember
