Best Case For Gaming

Which of the two below cases are better? If it is possible, is there a better case than the below two? I plan to run 2x 7950 in the future and want the case to support them and have good airflow and cable management. A good default fan config would be awesome. Also, I want the case to have USB 3.0 in the front. Thanks!

Here are the cases:

  1. Well if you plan on sli I would get the Dragon Rider as it is a full tower, looks like its better ventilated, also looks more badass
  2. Yeah, I plan on Crossfire in about 6-12 months.
  3. yep then definitely full tower will give you more room to expand
  4. I hope I can find space to place it downstairs. :b
  5. I just read a review, and the thing I don't like now is the motherboard tray. I don't want any clutter and there is no way to truly hide the cables..

    So it is between the 500R and 400R. What do you think?
  6. would certainly recommend this

    my cable management skills are truly atrocious--but the amount of cables i managed to hide behind the

    motherboard tray in this case was ridiculous--leading to the tidiest build i have ever done :D

    i can fit 2 6870's in it fairly easily. cable management is also pretty good
  8. The more expensive one seems like it would have better airflow because of the extra side fan, but there aren't too many other differences between the two. What is your mobo/price range? Are you looking to build a new system or put your current one in a better case to accommodate 2 GPUs?

    I just got the one below, and built my computer last night. There is TONS of room, and the airflow and noise levels are excellent. It is a full tower, so it will have plenty of room for everything, but is kinda big.

    Did this combo a couple weeks ago. Filled all of the fan slots. with the 4 pack of fans. Computer is fairly quiet. most of my fan noise is from GTX 460.

    The MOBO I am getting is the ASUS P8Z68-V/Gen3 and my budget for case is $200. I plan to build a new system.
  11. the 500r you have listed is amazing, or some other options...

    All will fit what you have planned and cool great. It all depends on what looks best to you. We all have different tastes. IMHO, you don't need a full tower if you don't plan on cramming a radiator in there.
  12. I wont ever WC this build.

    Thats what you think! ;)
  14. Same to you lol.
  15. Guess I am going with the 500R.
  16. That corsair case is a good choice. Have you figured out all the parts for the build yet?
