I'm buying a new case for my PC soon, (i have some crap case that came with my PC, awful airflow) and my budget is tight. So, what is the best case for under $60? Cm Elite 430 maybe? I also thought about the HAF 912 Plus, but it doesn't fit in my budget. I like the NZXT M59 but unfortunately they don't sell NZXT where i live :( 

Thanks.

It would probably be helpful if you divulged where you live.
The HAF 912 is $60 where I live.

Macedonia, they sell the HAF 912 Plus version in Europe, not the standard HAF 912, and the Plus is like 15-20$ more expensive. Also, Antec/NZXT as i said/Thermaltake are not an option.

The Elite 430 is very good. Do you have the AKASA Freedom Xone in there? Also what Raidmax cases in your budget?

Nope, none :( 

Only CM, InWin, Hantol... almost everything else are cheap 10$ no-name cases...

I'm just worried about the cable management and intake fan filters in the Elite 430. I have read that the cable management is pretty bad. Also, there is no space to add the 2x120mm fans on the top if you're using a CM Hyper 212+, which i also want to buy.

I might add the extra $$ for the HAF 912 Plus, but i haven't decided yet.

This guy in here (first one, page 4)

says that thin 120 mm fans can be used with the Hyper 212+. Here's an example
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's only 12 mm thick not 25 mm like the regular ones.

LE Or get some other cooler.


Hmm i'll think about those 12mm fans. Tnx.

@Dadiggle neither Rosewill or Antec can be find here. They used to have Antec cases years ago, but not novadays.

the CM elite 430 is a fine case and I prefer over the 912 standard case. if antec and cooler master are hard to find try these four cases. they should be easier to find in europe

enermax luxuray, silverston precision, xigmatek utgard or asgard

I'm going to vote for the Antec 300. I used them in the last 6 machines I built.
