hey guys im looking for a new case but my options are limited as i live in south africa and most components are overpriced here for example a coolermaster haf 922 works out about $200, so these are my options the aerocool vs9, the aerocool syclone, the gigabyte sumo 5115 and the gigabyte isolo 210, what would be the best case out of those bang for buck

Can you get your hands on an Antec 300 in your area? If so what would it cost you?
Also, can you put a price with each of the cases you've named?

Weird!.I live in Canada and my favourite suppliers are 4000km away and still beat prices of local shops.
It's too bad cuz it appears Landmark carries the best product lines.
Can you not source from Comx http://www.comx-computers.co.za/ as you probably know they are probably the biggest in S.A.
These guys seem to have reasonable shipping fees http://www.prophecy.co.za/
You could also try Zaps http://www.zapsonline.com/

Their descriptions of the CM 690II's are not very clear imo.
In N.A. there is two versions the Basic(i own one) and the Advanced.
The Basic comes with two fans a front 120mm blue led and a rear 120mm.
The Advanced comes with a front 140mm blue led /top 140mm/rear 120mm and some other goodies.
I would speak with them for clarification.Sometimes models are slightly different in other markets.

Antec dark fleet DF-30 -R 1,105.00-filtered and windowed
http://www.comx-computers.co.za/CH-ADF30WN-Antec-dark-f...

HAF922 -R 1,205.00-excellent airflow but no filters/use pantyhose/dryer sheets

All of the above cases are known to be good cases in their price range.
So whatever floats your boat cases are a personal choice.
