Default A good mid tower case for lan.

sup. i was wounderin wat a good mid tower is. i lik coolermaster in general but i am open to other brands also. i am looking for a really light case. i would prefer a window and anythin that supports micro atx with at least 4 exp slots (mid towers should have this) basically lik that but really light. i was thinkin of the 690|| but it looks a bit big for carrying coz i want to carry it onto the bus coz i dun have a car. :)

I'd suggest a Storm Scout. The integrated handles are great. I've got my wife's computer in one. Scout - Cooler Master

The Corsair Graphite 600T, it's an awesome case with hidden handles and a side panel lock hidden under the removable top grill to protect the hardware inside

Antec Lanboy Air might suit your needs. Fits the description your lookin for.

The Scout won't fit those GPU's , I have one and Love it but I believe the 5970's would be too long.

My only other suggestions would be NZXT Panzer Box or Vulcan.
Both of those should do it, but in the Vulcan you would have to remove the front lower HDD holder to make both work.

My fav is from far the 600T, not that heavy but pretty big. The panzerbox from NZXT is small, can fit everything, has a good cooling potential so maybe we have a winner?

Good selection, not all of them will fit the 5970's in tandem though. The Panzer Box has the best cooling for what you're running, as well as the ability to fit a 240mm RAD up top if you wanted to WC it.
