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!

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.

It can occomodate 6 fans, bottom mounted PSU.

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.

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.
