Which case for CoolerMaster 1000W & GTX295?

Ok i am upgrading my current gaming rig. Bought Asus Striker II mobo with Intel Q9650 quad core cpu, 6gb corsair memory. I am planning to buy GTX 295 over the weekend and my budget is quite limited after that much expense.

So I want to use my existing PSU: Coolermaster 1000W which is brand new. I now need a nice case with good cooling and silence and i dont wanna spend a fortune and buy a case which is same price with the PSU so all i need is a good chassis, good cooling and enough room for the gfx and psu.

I live in the UK and planning to goto the fairs over the weekend to complete the rig. Any ideas, guys?
Cheers

  1. Hi C

    Little more info please, what is your budget and do you want a mid or full tower?
  2. Hey star, thanks for the reply. I prefer a midtower due to space limitations smth around £50-£70 but if too nice can go upto £100 tbh :) As i dont care for the psu on the case, that is doable i hope :)
  3. These are good choices but there are more, I have to use a currency converter so I hope these numbers are right. I understand you won't be shopping in the United States, just giving you something to look at.

    Wow that thermaltake looks really nice, exactly a case i would go after, other ones are pro also, hope i can find them here in the UK..
  5. Its the best case I ever owed. I'm referring more to the engineering but it looks good to. I'm running the full tower, excellent air flow and space.

    It sure looks sexy but a bit pricey for me, right now. I would love to have a spacey case, where i can work on the cables and mobo easily, its been a while i had one...
  7. NXZT TEMPEST $99.99
  8. CM Storm Sniper or HAF 922.
  9. Take a look at the NXZT cases like J suggested, they're pretty decent.
  10. Although a little pricey for you, Cooler master Storm sniper is THE best case you can get under 200 USD..In fact its priced 150 USD at newegg. You do the math.
    One note though: Did you buy the ram already? 4 Gb is more than enough for you , and 6Gb became popular only because i7 CPUs run the memory in triple channel, and 3 Gb is small for such high-end systems..I mean you can save miney on the ram in favour of a better case. After all a good case can last for generations and generations of hardware and upgrades!
