Alrighty guys, the title says it all.

Right now I'm looking at the antec 900.

I know all of what I'm putting will fit inside of it.

Now, that's a 100+ dollar case so there's my budget.

Can you guys recommend something in the same price range to compare with or even something cheaper/better in your opinions?

I dont care if it has led's. I just want a black case. Ha. Thanks all

Regards,

Josh

definitely the Antec 300 then! it's pretty much the same case, but without as many features. NZXT also makes a very similar looking case called the Tempest. check them out!

The Antec 300 or the CoolerMaster Centurion 590. Although the 300 is more popular than the 590, both are exellent cases for people on a budget.

I am very fortunate in that there are two Fry's Electronics stores here in Phoenix. At any given time they have at least 50 pc cases on display. I can get a good look at cases before making a purchase. I have purchased five of the CM 590 cases for systems I built for other people. It's a clean looking case with good ventilation and it's easy to work with:

Thanks for the personal opinion.

I like the way the case looks but would like to know an opinion between the CM 590 and the Centurion 5

The reason I ask is a friend built his pc in the case and liked it, said it was spacious.

If anyone has experience with it, what do you think?
