Need a cheap temp case...suggestions?

I am looking to get a case that wont be released for about 1-2 months. I want to put the computer before then, is there a cheap case you'd recommend?

These are my parts

cpu/cooler i7 920 w/ coolermaster 212
mobo p6x58d w/ 6(3x2)gb corsair 1600ram
vga 5770 1gb
psu corsair 750hx
2.5" SSD + 1TB samsung spinpoint (HD103SJ i think)

Thanks!

  1. Have a look at the Lian Li / Lancool Dragon Lord K-56. It is a budget version of the Dragon Lord K-62. It can accomodate the Hyper 212 cpu heatsink and the 5570 video card:

    At $59.98 Mwave.com has the lowest price in the USA:

    Newegg has the Antec 200 on sale for $29.95 with a $10 rebate. use promo code EMCYRYT82

    To go real cheap, why do you need a case at all? Just put your mobo on top of the box it came in and the other parts nearby.
  3. The NZXT Gamma is a great case, http://www.nzxt.com/products/gamma

    I have often seen it for $29 Canadian

    It can occomodate 6 fans, bottom mounted PSU.

    Never tried this before. I can do that? just on top of the box it came with??
  5. Not too much different from a test bench.

    However, be careful if you have little children, cats, dogs, and other creatures. No beverages anywhere near the setup either.

    No problem. I do that to check things out before I put them in the case. As JohnnyLucky said, be careful of pets, kids, etc.
  7. To Motamedn... :hello:
    The coolermaster 690 II advanced is the case you want... trust me :D
    10x 120mm fans
    support for two radiators
    removable hdd bays
    dust filters
    enough room for any graphics/heatsink on the market :bounce:

    It's called breadboarding:

    Great way of testing parts before you install them in a case.
