This is for a gaming pc:

Case: Antec 300

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955

Mobo: Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4

RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws 2x2GB CL 7

GPU: XFX 5850

PSU: Corsair 750TX

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB

ODD: Lite-On

OS: Windows 7 OEM

Monitor: Viewsonic 22" 1080p

Mouse: Logitech G500

Keyboard: Logitech G11

Speakers: Creative Gigaworks T20

I was reccomended to change the case to something bigger? Like this. Should i change the case? What would be better for around £50?

Budget is £1,000 (this goes a bit over but that's ok). Just want to know everyones thoughts, if everything goes together and if i should change anything.

Any reason other than brand name? Reccomend me some optical drives?

And should i change the case to NZXT BETA, CM690 or something else?

I reccomend a brand name because it gives some certainty of quality because there are hardly any reviews of optical drives so you don't really know what you are buying with those cheap brands.

As for the case I zould'nt take the NZXT as it's pretty bad quality. Also I'd go with an antec 300 illision instead of the normal one since it has more fans installed. Whether you go with the CM690 or the 300 is just down to personal preference.

I thought Lite-On was a good brand name ODD. Just cause it's cheap doesn't mean you lose quality.

Sony sells their ODDs cheap. With your assumption, you're saying that there's no quality.

@OP, I think your build is fine the way it is.

Ok i just measured the cases and the depths a few inches more than can fit so before i go with this i need to find a good case that can fit W - 340mm H - 470mm D - 450mm.

If lite-on is good brand then go for it but I've never heard of it, but if you know it then ok. Srry just never heard of it. And I didn't really mean cheap brands I meant brands that you don't know if they deliver quality or not.

Lite-on is a pretty-well respected name for optical drives.

Yeah NZXT isn't a bad brand but that case isn't terribly good. I would'nt take the cheapest cooler master cases either.
