Can't pick a case!

Hey guys, I need your help picking a case for around $150. I want a big good looking gaming case that is relatively quiet case with really good airflow and won't get too dusty. I have been looking at these cases (i live in california so i'm going to be buying from amazon):

What do you guys think of those or do you have any suggestions.

    I'm a fan of the Antec 1200 over the HAF 932. I would look at the Antec DF-85, as an alternative to your case choices...

    Of I would look at the Corsair 600T White edition. It is a mid-size case but it has plenty of room for any setup... IMO

    If your looking for better cooling the antec case is the way to go if your picking between those 2 cases. Im up in alberta Edmonton and on kijiji a guy is sellin his for 50 bucks minus the fans though. In any case the bigger more fans the better. I was also thinking about picking one of those up but my case was fine I just modded my case and ran more fans. thats always a cheap alternitive to getting a new case if you dont really need one and are just looking for more cooling
  3. At this point which would you enjoy looking at more?? I know I know, both.
    I guess I lean toward the HAF, at least today. More rampant?
  4. I go along with tecmo. Years ago, I standardized on Antec 900 cases (modded for cable management) because of the cooling. If I were starting over today, it would probably be the Corsair 600T.
  5. I would go with the Antec DF-85.
  6. Yeah they are both good cases between them its weather you want blue lights or red....I like the red leds but the antec will be a cooler case out of the box. it has bigger fan so more airflow less noise + if you get one of those cases and are not expecting the temp drop you want there is always other cooling methods. What is getting so hot? cpu? mobo? ram? nb? + make sure you overkill your power supply...for instance if you system requires a 500watt psu for min specs you will run higher tmps due to your psu running full tilt to keep you system up....When I build rigs I ALWAYS go at least 2 steps up from requirements like my system to run everything I needed a min psu of 500watts (learned this the hard way) I got a good quality 500 psu but a month and a hlf later poof there it goes. And I had idle temps of around 49-52 idle....thought that was fine till psu blew then went out picked up an atx 1000watt and Im running temps low idle of 28-32...as Im writing this my cpu temp is goin between 29-30.
  7. I am building my first system and I'm leaning towards the DF-85 now cause it looks sexy and you guys say it's better for cooling. I'm going to be running two 6950s and I'm going to overclock them so good GPU cooling is important
  8. of course you will over clock them....most ppl who say they dont lie!! if you or me or anyone else can get better performance @ the same cost they will. and yes that is a sexy looking case for sure would you have enough room in the case for aftermarket coolers to fit on those cards in that case? if there is enough room thats what i recommend sounds like your gearin up to build a wicked rig. Right on man!
  9. i should the cpu cooler isn't to big I'm getting the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm. Thanks for all the help guys I think im going for the DF-85
