My Antec 300 case was damaged in a move and I was looking to move the internals into a budget case. I prefer not to go back to the Antec 300 so would anyone have any opinions or input on either of these cases?

These seemed to be popular, don't look outrageous and will fit in my pc cabinet. I prefer the looks of the Centurion 534 but I'm concerned about the cooling, which looks like it might be better on the Centurion 5.

Internals consist of:

CPU - Core 2 Quad Q9550
Cooler - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2
Motherboard - Asus P5q SE Plus
Power Supply - Corsair 650 TX
Video Card - EVGA GeForce GTX 260
Hard Drives - 2 Western Digital 640GB
DVD Burners - 2 Samsung
Fans - 3 Nexus 120mm Real Silent

Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I like the 534 better as well. l don't think there is a an issue with airflow since the front corners are perforated and there is space for a fan in front of the HDD cage.

unless you are stuck on cooler master i would recommend Thermaltake V3 Black Edition... much better case than your original preferences, about the same size with better cooling and priced less...

If you are happy with CM then cooler master elite 430 will be a better choice in the same price belt...

I would consider the COOLER MASTER Gladiator 600 it has better features then the cases you linked.
Cable management and cpu cut-outs and better cooling options.
120mm front intake and 140mm top exhaust.
Just add your fans.

can the Cooler Master Gladiator 600 Cabinet hold a 6950 easily?
the dimensions of the card are 11.3" x 4.38" x 1.5"

also take a look on the cm store website, i just grabbed a 534 with 450 psu for about 30 bucks, came mint condition... you can find some nice deals on there time to time.

Thanks for all of the input, I looked at the Elite 430 and Gladiator 600, went with the COOLER MASTER Gladiator 600.
