More about need deciding case
  1. Cooler Master Storm Trooper

  2. nice case. personally i went for antec 300 (psu at bottem so pulls heat just from graphics card

    then 1 fan on top, 1 on back and 2 intake in front

    the front panel has very simple clips that you press with side of case off (thumb screws to open it)

    then it is removed easily)

    if thats your budget would recomend antec 1200 though (3 intake fans onfront,1 on top and 2 on back)
  3. Unless your putting some kind of monster build in here.....seriously don't waste so much of your budget on the case......

    A cheaper mid-tower ATX case would be more than suitable and would likely leave you enough spare ££/$$ to upgrade your GPU or add an SSD/get bigger SSD.

    What is the rest of the build out of interest?

    I think this is the first build I think I've seen on TOMs where someone is actually buying an E-ATX motherboard to use with a FULL TOWER case :) Congratulations :) My vote is for the Storm Trooper between the two options.

    You should MAYBE *depending how much effort is involved* consider selling the 6970 and 560Ti and grabbing a new 7970?

    New 6970: $380
    New 560Ti: $270
    Total: $650
    New 7970: $550
