Hey all,
Im going build my first computer
heres what i was going to put in:
AMD Phenom II X6 1075t
Corsair CX600
Asus GeForce GTX460 ( Or ati 6850, not sure yet)
ASrock 870 Extreme 3
Samsung 1500GB HDD
Corsair 2*4Gb memory

I was looking around to find a good case but somehow non of them seems to really got what i want them to have,
so i was hoping maybe you guys hade some tips or ideas.

Heres what i want:
Dust Filters
At least 2 Pre installed Fans
At least 2 USB connectors
SATA connector
Solid drive bays
Also i want to have a nice looking case. Anything with some lights will do as long as its not 1 colour without any nice features if you get me.
Preferably black on this inside but not a must.

Heres what i came up with;
Thermaltake V9 Black Edition but the drive bays dont look too solid, no SATA as far as i can see and also the price is a little high for my budget.
NZXT M59 not available anymore at my dealer

so yeah.. after searching for ages thats what i came up with.. i hope you guys got some more ideas

The Advanced is identical but includes extra gadgets and 3rd fan.

It depends on the price difference from what they charge for the Basic.
Personally the only thing i missed/added to my Basic was a 140mm top exhaust fan.
Which was roughly $12+tax.
Factor that in as well as if you have any uses for the hot-swappable top drive bay and a ssd drive cage.
If you do it's defintely worth $90.suggested retail price is $99 most shops can budge on that if that's what they're charging and you're there ready to buy.
I do it all the time at my local shop.
Even if they had a Basic and charged $70 you still need to add a fan like i did imho.$82
It's a very well designed case,has tons of room, excellent airflow and cable management and it also fits your criteria in every department.
I was browsing different good cases and they all fall short compared to it.
I highly doubt you'll be disappointed it's an excellent case.
I know i like mine.

I think i can get the advanced for 87 where the basic will cost me about 75.

Thanks again, i'll stick with that one!

That's a good price and definitely worth it.
especially since i know i'll be adding an ssd sooner then later.
Wish i'd bought the Advanced now lol!

hehe,
actually the prices are in euros
so it'll come in at less than 70 dollars.

does the basic not have any SSD drives?

Nope only the Advanced comes with the 2.5" adapter.
