Hi , i'm juan
I'm planning on building my first gaming pc as a project for myself. I played a little unreal tournament when i was little and the experience was awesome but i had a crap computer so i had to play on super low settings.
I'm excited to get a good gaming rig and join the pc community instead of buying the next gen consoles. Anywyas i want to know which CASE is better for this build and i'm think about the future too, i want all my pieces to fit incase i decide to upgrade next year or something. I've been looking at these 3 cases :Cooler Master storm, haff 912 or 922. All help is appreciated and i just want something that will do and will be future ready. Thanks.!

They will all work, but I would grab the HAF 912. This is because I've owned the 912 and I own a Scout as well. The Scout offers barely any cable management, but the 912 gives great cable management and has great airflow.

I would also change the board to an asrock z68 extreme 3 gen 3

Thanks for the info, could you give me a comparison? Wth this build i'm going for high settings comfortably maybe some games on ultra , but just if the graphics are good on high on the most demanding games i'll be happy.

912 will be the best option.

Will the 912 have enough room incase i want to upgrade in the near future say a year? I heard some motherboards have a hard time fitting into the 912.

I would upgrade the ulta PSU. Go to Realhardtechx,com for a data base for PSU.
