Default ATSC 840 or (your suggestion)

Hi all, I'm having $200 to spend on anything, I was waiting for the G25 to get a discount but it seemed like those deals are not coming back anymore, so I'm thinking of buying a case instead.The case I have right now basically sucks, it's a no name case.

I'm thinking of getting the ATSC as the price is about right, and it looks quite good. Not sure about the cooling potential (seems kinda bad compared to HAF), but that's not my major concern. It looks good and its big, I think thats why I like it.

As you probably have figured out, I'm quite clueless. Please bring in the suggestion, or perhaps I can buy something else. I may seem like a spoiled person but it's been 2 years since I've bought myself anything, I really want the feeling of a new shiny toy again.

Thank you.

Lian Li K62 or K56 and spend the rest towards whatever else needs upgrading or something else you want (another hobby).

I curently own an atcs and it is great. Enormous but great. You get all the space you could dream of. And the removable tray is just awesome.

This is what I went with for a new case a few months back. Tons of excellent features for under $200!

As much as I love my HAF-932, sometimes I think I should have went smaller and that was the one I would have picked if I had went for a mid tower instead of full.

That ATSC is a freakin' awesome case. It was my second choice before going with the Raven. For two hundred bills I can't think of anything better to spend it on aside from a few lap dances.

Nice nice, so I guess I was on the right track then. I love the K62 too, but the 840 just look so nice compare to it, guess I'll be buying that case then. Thanks everyone for the great inputs.

Personally, I own one, and it's the best case I have ever seen. So easy to work in, rout cable, remove the mobo with the tray in like...5 second...You can't be disappointed with a case like this one. Excellent choice.

Ask for more.
