I am looking into buying a case preferably no higher than 100 if possible. I will be using this mainly for gaming and everything so a graphics card should fit in there. Also it needs to be able to fit a atx mobo. Now for some links

Case 1 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i know this is a little more than my budget but it looks nice. It is a corsair carbide 500r

Case 2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this one is nice and on target would like help finding a better one or not. Corsair 400r

MOBO this is the mobo the case needs to be able to fit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... it is a ASUS P8P67 DELUXE

both of the cooler masters look nice but is there a huge difference between the 89 and 59 dollar ones? I am currently watching newegg tvs video of the cases to see which is nice.

My only problem with the HAF912 is that it sits very close to the floor. carpet the With the power supply intake on the bottom it restricts airflow. If sitting on carpet no airflow from bottom vent.
Took the casters off of my old server case and mounted then . Now sits 2 inches off of the floor. No more problems.

it is now a tie between the lian li and cooler master 922 they both look nice and both corsair carbide 400 and 500r. Man i never thought choosing a case could be so much trouble which one is the best bang for the buck i may get the 500r or the 400r but the cooler master looks promising also.

Go for which ever you think looks best. They're all going to perform roughly the same as each other.

lol ! sounds like you've done enough research now on it . Nothing prevokes much more debate in these threads than case choices ( besides watercooling ) So at this point I'm sure you'll be happy with your decision . good luck and happy hunting :hello:

okay the white looks amazing i will be getting that i dont feel like ruining my case from attempting to paint it myself. Cant wait until monday.

I have a quick question however is the case big enough to hold a gtx 460 or a bigger one say a 680.
