I am going to get some parts for a PC and I decided to not spend to much money on the case but still have air flow and cable management. I just want to make sure the Corsair Carbside 300r would be good. Here is the list. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qpwpmG

The 300R is a great choice. Not many cases that can compete with it currently on the market in the same price range.

If you wanted a windowed case you could go with the Thermaltake Chaser A31

Edit: I am going to go with the thermaltake just for the tray on the top to hold stuff lol.

I see some places in the build where you could save money and upgrade to better stuff for the same price. Before you buy it send me a pm, I'll help you out.

Where could I save money so I can edit the part picker link?

Edit: BTW I have a microcenter near me so I can get my 4770k at $260

I am sorry, but that type of build is not what I am going for. I want to stick with a 780 because I have not built a PC with an nvidia card so I wanted to give that a try and then I wanted to OC so i need my 850 watt powersupply (Plus, I only trust named brands for PSU's EVGA is very reliable even though they are new to PSUs) And I also want a faster hard drive so all and all good part list but I do not want to skimp out on any parts.

I finished building my new pc a few days ago and am using a thermaltake chaser A31.I dont like the cheap plastic 5.25 to hold the 3.5 HDD in place.Only 2 USB ports on the front and when I received it 1 works.They will send me a new board and I have to take the bad one to UPS with no way to start the computer.Out of 5 egg's I give this case 3.In my opinion even Sentey is a better case.
