Is the Cabinet that important Tags: Homebuilt Gaming Intel i5 Systems Last response: January 8, 2010 1:30 PM in Systems Share sri@1kGHz January 8, 2010 7:07:09 AM Hi folks, In building a gaming rig , for instance with i5/dp55kg/radeon 5770 Is it really necessary to have a high end cabinet like the Antec P193 , or will any cheaper one do the job. I know a good PSU is necessary, but what about the cabinet ? More about : cabinet important jsc a c 122 B Homebuilt system January 8, 2010 7:14:25 AM You need a case that is capable of moving a lot of air through it, hopefully without too much noise. The Antec 300 and 900 are good choices. So are some of the CoolerMaster cases. shubham1401 January 8, 2010 1:30:21 PM Cabinet is important but that doesn't means you have to spend a lot. As mentioned by jsc... The cabinet should be able to move lot of air. I have a generic case that's 5 year old which I bought for 20$. It does the job very well. Whatever you buy just check the cooling and whether it can house that card. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumWhich Cabinet to choose?
