should i do gaming on my SFF case ?

Hello everyone, i'm little bit confused, should i do gaming on my SSF case ? i'm worried about heating, the case has no fan case ! and it's little, the parts are close to each other.
Is it safe to do gaming on this case ? or should i get another case ? i found a midtower w/ a 480watts PSU for 60$ but i dunno what to do...

  1. No. Heating will cause huge problems for your components and you will need space to fit in components.

    Buy a mid-tower and a 600 watt psu or 550 so you can run better components. If you give me a budget, I could peace together a build for you :) But I'm gonna be gone for a bit so I might post it later tonight. Unless another user assists you.
  2. i'm not builduing a computer :D i have a PC in a SFF case and i wanna start gaming. Giving me a case is a bad idea because here in morocco it's so hard to find components unless you buy from internet, buying from internet is barely possible so no, i found a MID-tower with a 480PSU, my components are not using alot of power ( i have a 300PSU right now) the mid tower with psu = 60$ :)

    Well it depends on the specs of your current computer, can you tell me what they are?
  4. My specs now are very low but, next moth after my upgrade, my pc will be :

    Intel core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHZ
    300 watts PSU
    Nvidia GeForce 210
    3 or 4 GB RAM DDR2
    160 GB HDD

    the 300 watts PSU is with the old case ( the SFF one ) but the new one that i wanna buy has a 480watts PSU and it's a mid-Tower :)

    with those specs you could get like 17-34 FPS on BF4 on low settings.
  6. i won't even play those kind of nex-gen games.. if i'm gonna play a high graphics games it gonna be BF3 or COD MWF series.
  7. btw i have never experienced low setting gaming but does it look REALLY REALLY BAD or it's good ?

    It's decent. games will still look good and for BF3 and some COD MWF, you will prob game like low/medium. Hope this helped you out. :) be sure to pick me as best solution lol. your rig is ok, but look to upgrading soon, as your current setup is outdated.
  9. thanks for the help and don't worry i'll pick you cuz there is no one x)
