Please help me pick out a better case for my build.which is the range of 100- 150.
I am looking for looks and good management. I would like to have some room to expand. In ways like another video card
and hard drives.
(checK out my video posting to see my rig) http://youtu.be/igRyI3Ms3UM

This is the first time i have posted a video that requires me to talk so please be nice.
I have posted the details of the hardware in the build.


Thanks guys

Best solution

You did very well for your budget. I would leave it alone until your next major upgrade. Alot of posts about transfer issues; "it worked fine until I transferred everything to my new case". On a low budget you really don't want to go with water cooling. At a certain point when overclocking, your rate of return (improved frame rates) is too low to justify the cost.

Thanks buddy for the comments. As far as water cooling goes i got the h80 as a open box item for 35.00. I took a gamble at it and it worked out really well no pump noise or anything wrong.

What do u think about the raven 3.
I really like that case although its a little over my budget.

Unless you win the lottery, I wouldn't spend the money. My last two cases were $30 or less. For the price of the raven, you can get a nice video card. If you're a working stiff like I used to be (semi-retired) then I would search craigslist or other sources for someone else's mistake and make an offer. But it's nice to dream.
