I'm new to this site but I've heard many good things so I figured, why not ask my question here? I not COMPLETELY computer ignorant, however this is my first attempt to build one ground up.
So here's the deal: I have an ASUS P5Q Deluxe motherboard and I'm sticking a Visiontek ATI 4850 HD vid-card in there. Sometime in the near future when i save up money i plan on purchasing another 4850 and enabling CrossFire. Now my question is, can you guys recommend a Computer Case that can comfortable fit my mobo/dual video cards while providing enough room adequate airflow and future upgrades?
I know this sounds very trivial, but im new to this and I would greatly appreciate your help.
Oh I'm really sorry, let me add a few more details.
In terms of appearance i like it sleek rather than blocky, you know, something a little more "modern." Windows are cool, but LEDs should be kept to a minimum.
My budget is about $100-$200 but i really dont want to go over $150 unless absolutely necessary. Then again, if its good quality I may not mind going over that budget ever so slightly. Also I live in the Contiguous United States; California to be more exact.
Thank you for your prompt reply, i look forward to hearing from you again.
That depends, what PSU are you thinking of? The 12v amp rating is more important than the wattage. A quality 550W psu will do crossfire 4850's, but a cheap 700W may struggle depending on the amp rating.
I would check out some quality PSU's in the 550W - 650W range. Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Antec, Seasonic, etc...
