Can't decide on case :(

hi, I Don't know how to do those redirects sorry, So I got 2 cases in mind both Mid-towers a rosewill destroyer or a RAIDMAX Blade both similar in price except the rosewill comes with 3 or 4 case fans. The rosewill destroyer is very unappealing so I wanted to get the RAIDMAX blade but I'm not sure and also I'm wondering is the case going to have enough room with my specs? I hear my GPU is very large. Here're my specifications.

  1. I recommend you shop for a used case first. Use craigslist or anandtech. Here's one example of an excellent deal: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4531728&SRCCODE=LINKSHARE&cm_mmc_o=-ddCjC1bELltzywCjC-d2CjCdwwp&AffiliateID=SyIrj13jmG8-0y7amHBO_nvZkQcOFubMIQ. Priced at $45 used on anandtech's for sale forum by taylor 2813.
  2. I wouldn't get the raidmax blade because it doesn't have usb 3 ports up front. It will, however, fit your gpu without problems.
    Take a look at the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer case. I have it and really like it.

  3. Antec 300 or HAF 912 are good budget cases and on sale all the time for $50.
  4. I just built a new rig for a friend of mine and was very pleased with the Rosewill ARMOR. It had plenty of room for his 6950 with good airflow though-out. And unlike the Storm Enforcer the ARMOR has a 200mm side fan to blow cool air over your Video card plus a 80mm fan on the other side to help cool off the backside of mainboard.

  5. I'm on a budget, and I rather have the fans come with I don't want to have to buy it I'd like it come with as a bundle sort of thing, the Rosewill Destroyer comes with x1 LED light fan ~ btw when the LED light dies is the fan itself going to die too? or just the lights~ and x2 reg. fans. I still don't really like the looks But I guess I'm going to have to stick with it or wait in tell a case nicer and still comes with fans is on sale...But thanks again for your suggestions I'll still put it in mind. :)
