Personally, do not get the H440 for a $650 build. Also, it is NOT an easy case for beginners, esecially for cable management.

With a $650 budget, you should not be placing a lot of the money on your case. When on a budget build, you need to put your money towards the parts that will make a big difference in gaming. You need a budget friendly case. I will put a build list together later on tonight, but a case that is more realistic for your budget is a Corsair Spec 02 or 03.

My issue with the 350D, is that the front intake struggles to bring air in because of the front panel. I have the bigger brother, and it is the 750D. Its just a massive version of the 350D. The looks are why I got this case, but now, after the wow factor is gone, all that is left is how I can expand in it and how good the airflow is. The airflow from the front, is bad and annoying. I get anywhere from 7-12 degrees increase in temperatures with it on. this can be an issue for build that may not be using the best CPU coolers (as they generally don't have as much temperature headroom before you reach the max. Always pick a case on how well the airflow, noise, and expandability is, because the wow factor will at some point go away. If you don't mind taking the front panel off of the 350d when using the PC, then it would be fine. Its is a great micro atx case, but the airflow is a concern to me. If you dint mind taking the front panel off when gaming, you should be fine.

Do you want a small PC or a medium sized PC? I need to know so I can select out a motherboard.

If you really want the 350D, and since you said you can go to $700, here you go. I know its a little bit over, but change the case, and you will be good. I included not DVD/CD drive because most people just use an external one because they are hardly ever used. Windows however, is included.

I want you to check out the Fractal Design Core 3300, Corsair Spec 03, Corsair Spec 02, and my the NZXT Phantom 240 before you buy.
