Which Case?
ive got a few ideas of cases i like

armour Jr. - liked alot, and was set on this case, then figured it might be small, and stared not to like it as much

armour full tower

antec 900 ( the price is sure right at NCIX atm)

gigabyte aurora 570 ( ive read skymtl's review and others) i like it alot, but 190 bucks ...hoping it will come back on sale at NCIX next week or something....

anyways, lets hear your opinions. thanks

Personally I was thinking about getting the Antec 900. They have it at Direct Canada for $117.53.

I keep going back to the Antec 900 when I'm looking at current decently priced cases.

I'm still waiting for somebody on here that's actually used one to drop us a few notes on what they thought.

It would probably help if you gave folks an idea of what you wanted to put into it, and whether or not you're looking at a heavy OC &/or Water Cooling.

The only thing I don't like about the 900 is the top mount USB/Audio.... Might get in the way of a top rad install WC build.

I don't like the top mout USB/Audio either especially since the case will be top of a desk. Makes it a pain in the ass when wanting to use headphones which I use a lot.

ya, well the price is sure right on the 900 right now at NCIX, its like $87 or something on this weeks "summer sale" i think it is.

i could get 2 of those for the price of the aurora or armour full T. but i like the all aluminum of the aurora...the only thing is the fan problem which skymtl pointed out, as well as a simple solution.

I dont plan to WC, but i plan to overclock some. ive been researching stuff for like a year now, but i just keep putting off spending money, cause i cant make up my mind.

Might also consider waiting for the antec 1200 to come out. bigger, better cooling and a huge optional 200mm rad to attach on top with the 200mm fan :D gonna be an awsome oc'er.
