i have been looking at some new cases for my custum built (because my old one kinda SUCKED). i can't find any that i like but then again i have a long list of requrements any suggestions on which one?
1. must be cheap (85$ or under)
2. must be mid tower able to support both a atx bord and a large graphics card
3. psu preferably top mounted.
4. at least 2 stock fans
5. good ventilation
6. want it to look good without out side windows or led fans
7 CANNOT be gigantic (has to fit withen my old computer desk)
sooooo yeah i relize its a long list but any suggestions?
Why would you want a top-mounted PSU? That's less thermally efficient.
There are many cases like this. Just trawl Newegg, sorting by lowest price and starting around $50, and check out whatever isn't too flashy for you. "ATX mid tower" is a Newegg category.
On another note, good ventilation will be pointless if you stick the whole thing in a little wooden box in your desk. That could be a pretty serious thermal issue if you're doing a high-end build. Does the compartment have a solid back, or can the case exhaust? Can you post a picture?
my case would be able to exhaust and i was looking for a top mounted because i don't have much experince with bottem mounted casess (more like none at all) and if something went wrong i don't want want to have to buy something(im at the end of my budget).
also my build is not high end at all (socket 939+ hd 4650 agp version).
