What do you think about this case? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cases are so personal. What one would like the next person won't.


That's a really nice case, quiet and cool, cannot go wrong with it.

While your saving in that aspect you can actually get a better CPU which will help in the performance area of your PC.

I would get an antec or corsair power supply instead of coolermaster. Here's two examples:

Antec, Corsair, XFX, and Seasonic are all great options. You really do not need a massive PSU either if you only plan on running the 7770.

I know about the Fractal Cases but i like a "Manly" case. i am not so much on noise but im more on design and looks. Performance is a plus too. :p  I just couldnt get the corsair PSU To fit in my Budget.

The Coolmaster is just not acceptable. http://www.johnnylucky.org/power-supplies/psu-lemon-lis...

How many Coolmasters are on there (7 including yours)? Now count how many times you see Antec, Corsair, PC Power and Cooling, Seasonic, XFX (none).

If the CPU is the brains of the computer the power supply is the heart and blood of the computer. It is the single most important component in the computer because if it is bad it can kill every component it touches.

25% of your budget for your case is steep. I don't know how you define "manly" because a 27lb steel case is certainly no wimp.

If you want a "manly" case the Cooler Master 912 is a great case for the money.

And get a quality psu if you don't it could fry ALL your parts!
