So I have pretty much got all the components for my build, but I really don't know what computer case to get. I want a case that looks nice, but one that doesn't look so flashy that my friends make fun of it.
It must have usb 3.0s on the front, and ideally be under £100. I would hope to pay around £50.
If anything else in my build is bad, do not hesitate to do so.
Your choices for this system look very good. The ASUS motherboard has a really good array of slots. I would agree with C12Friedman to consider a good cooling solution. Then you wouldn't have to worry, plus adding cooling is much easier initially rather than after everything is in and set. I would recommend something, but don't know these in detail well enough- there are issues of noise, fit to a particular motherboard- clearing RAM slots and so on. Still, if prices in the UK are not terribly higher than the US, there must be a number of well-rated solutions about or £25.
The Case > I'm not a gamer and perhaps out of habit using workstations many years, prefer very blocky, non-distracting cases- I don't care for the spiky transformer toy style. Here's a business-like and sober Antec Three Hundred >
> plenty of drive bays, 2X USB 3.0 on the front, a very open front panel for air circulation, grommets to run liquid cooling, and in general appears very tidy.
