help picking a case

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok so I need help picking a sweet looking case that can fit all my parts http://pcpartpicker.com/list/ I've been looking at a deepcool (the one listed) as it has cool leds and is cheap. But honestly if you guys have any good case recommendations for under 50 US dollars I am open to changing it.

hit the link it should work

you have to use the permalink above the list, not the actual URL. The case you picked out is a good case. $50 is a pretty tight budget for a good looking case but the tesseract or whatever is a good pick

Well I said good looking case. and looks are all opinion. I think cases tend to look better in the 100ish dollar price range. you can have a totally different opinion. Theres nothing wrong with the case you picked lol its great for its price

i just in your list that you chose a TJ08e.....I had that case and it is kinda nice, but has pretty bad temps for gpus unless you have a blower cooler. It is very compact for mATX though. Just fyi.

 

Also, when buying a case, one should rather spend more on a quality case, because that is something that may last several upgrade cycles. 

I just bought the nano s from fractal and I have to say this is probably my last case for a while. It basically has everything I want and is fairly small AND it will support water cooling.....I am not sure if I want that yet, but it is nice to have support.

 

The mentioned s340 is a great case btw. Very solid and low price for what you get. If I wanted atx, that would be my choice.
