  1. Best answer
    I mean, it's whatever suit your needs. Depending on what is going inside of the case. I always try to recommend the NZXT S340 as it is sleek and modern looking.

    But picking the case is what looks good to YOU. It's your hard earned money, make a decision you can live with. Just make sure it's spacious for GPUs and HDDs to allow maximum airflow.
  2. Okay, my first build and didnt know if there was a big difference. Just one HDD an SSD, RX-480 8GB and 750W EVGA,
  3. I went with the Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus . Decent quality, and liked the way the bays took the HDD, SDD and optics drive without screws. Cons: Could have given better instructions with screws, especially recessed mobo screws (2 out of the 9), and could have made more room to help manage cables on alternate side. Also, the fan is a little load. Overall, for the price and quality, the case is good.
  4. Mine sharing pics of the build?
  5. Sure, will do when I get home later today.
