My System Specs

Default Good Gaming Case

Hey all out there, I need some advice/help.

Im looking to build a computer in the next couple of weeks, but I can't seem to pick out a Case,

Originally I was going to go with the HAF 922 Case.
Then I decided on the HAF 932 Advanced Case.
But now Im thinking about the HAF XM case....

One thing however that I really have found about the first two cases is the lack of dust filters. I want good airflow, but dust filters are kind of important in my purchase. If anyone could, could you recommend me a good looking gaming case with lots of airflow but has dust filters?

My budget is around $160. Thanks!

I know my next build will have one of these for the chasis (probably Haswell)

Corsair Graphite Series 600T Special Edition White Review

I've got the HAF932 and it is a wonderful case for the money, but if dust filters are must for you than the HAF XM and the Corsair 600T are the best options which spring into my mind.

Take a look at the NZXT H2. Its my work computer case and its awesome. Quite, has dust filters, excellent fit/finish, and is only $100.00.

The 600T looks awesome. Can someone tell me if a Corsair CAFA70 CPU Cooler would be able to fit in the case without getting rid of the 200MM fan at the top?

I have been looking into a case as well

I am really liking Bitfenix Cases

I am look at this specific case:
Bitfenix Shinobi Window ATX Mid Tower Case

They are fairly priced. Most of the review's i have read say they are great cases. Strong, good cable management.

Here is a link to the case:

Bitfenix Shinobi Window ATX Mid Tower Case Black 3X5.25EXT 8X3.5INT No PS Top USB3.0 Audio - BitFenix - BFC-SNB-150-KKW1-RP

Just something to think about

Cheers!

The Bitfenix Shinobi is a great case for it's price. That's for sure. It's what I am currently using.

If you are looking for something a bit more pricey I would highly suggest checking out Corsair's whole line of cases. They are pretty amazing quality and have ALL the features.
