At the moment Im leaning towards CM 690 II Advanced but I wasnt too sure whether or not the Nexus was reliable seeing that i havent seen to much reviews/youtube videos on them. As for the spacing, I checked around and believed that the cases I checked out can have the parts picked out. I just cant decide on a case they all look good haha. Help me list the pros and cons maybe lol. Looking for a gaming case that can have good airflow and be quiet as well. Kind of trying to find the balance of both.
Also for the SSD and HDD Im starting to think I should just get an SSD later since it only affects load time by mere seconds. As for the HDD Ive checked out Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB and also WD Caviar Black and Blue 500GB. Or maybe a 1TB for either. Now my question is that which do you think is best for my system and mind explaining how RAIDing actually works? Thanks again
I think the Prominent R is the best case from the 3. It has USB 3, noise dampening, Rubber grommets and 8 PCI-E bracket but it has no mount for fan in the side and no LED fans. But Other that I think it's your best choice.
For you I will not do RAID. Just get a 1TB HDD (anything 7200RPM and reliable would be fine) and then when you have the cash grab some 60GB SSD.
Both ASrock and mSI are good boards, the 77 is intels latest chipset so has integrated USB 3 and SATA 3 and a host more features.
So would you say the MSI is just better overall compared to the Z68? And how bout the parts that I have listed? Will it be compatible with the MSI Z77? Also does it affect my i5 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU? Because i heard its for like Ivy Bridge or something. Thanks for the help again.
