My build right now is: http://www.dinokomp.si/konfigurator/?mb_id=3763&proceso...

Now I have Corasir C70,but I also like NZXT. Tempest 410 Elite (80€) and Corsair Carbide Series 400R (105€). Is there any big diffrence or not,couse I can save 30€ here ?

And can all of them have 2 GTX 770 ?

Tnx for help

I would shy away from NZXT at all costs. At least that case in particular. You'll probably find it a frustrating task fitting two of those cards into that case. Judging by the reviews on Newegg, it hasn't got much room for GPUs or larger heatsinks.

Any reason for this? I've had good experiences with NZXT. Don't go by what the Newegg reviews tell you (words can't express how much I loathe store reviews), they are not professional reviews, and they are not accurate methods for judging products. Anyone can write these reviews, I'd say maybe 10% of the people who do actually are tech experts, and the ones that do all the complaining don't know what they are talking about. And it's the base for a metric **** ton of misinformation about tech products on the internet - OCZ knows a thing or two about this.

OP - what is your max budget? You don't need a motherboard like the Maximus, you can get something a lot cheaper.

+1
The NZXT Phantom 410 is one of the rare cases which has received good technical reviews. Otherwise, most people avoid NZXTs all together.
I can swear by Corsair Cases - and even the 300R is a complete bang for the buck. Antec cases, although they may look and feel conventional - are way better than NZXT, Bitfenix or Cooler Master cases. Just my two cents (aka paise).

NZXT cases are amazing, I don't know where all this anti-NZXT sentiment has come from. If the Switch 810 was released when I was buying I would probably have it under my desk instead of the HAF-X.

Also I think if your looking to put in a dual SLI setup, your looking at the wrong kind of case. While not completely necessary, you want to be looking into Full Tower cases (like the Switch 810).

So NZXT not the best option.

My budget for case is 125€ max. and for computer about 1350€.

About Full Tower can you recommend something for this budget.

And I wont have this CPU cooler,I will go with Corsair h100i so take in mind that there need to be space for radiator and I prefer to be on top.

I know that we can never generalise a particular brand as being inferior to the other, but the following video review/comparison really made me ponder:
NZXT vs Fractal Design
The video is quite long, but is very enjoyable.

At the end I come down to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I like C70 couse of window,but 500r haves 200mm fan. So does this 200mm fan helps so much,couse if comes to overheating in C70 I can also add fans at side panel.


The 500R is the better choice, the C70 has had a lot of reviews citing poor air flow. I have a 500R and I've never seen system temps go above 35'C.

125€ = 165 USD according to Google. I'd say you cannot go wrong with Obsidian 550D, and it fits your budget too.

Yeah it will fit 2 770s in there just fine. My rig uses a GTX 660.

As far as power supply something like this: http://www.dinokomp.si/produkt/sea-sonic-x-series-x-850...
