i have no idea what case to get for my budget build. my current pc is a dell e521 and it's not really visible in the desk, so i guess that a full atx is about the same size. parts i have so far are
gigabyte ga 970 ds3
athlon ii 260
2x2gb g skill ripjaws (blue ones with notchy tops)
antec earthwatts 500
i'm looking for a hdd but may keep my current 160gb and get a ssd, then upgrade the hdd later.?
will look to upgrade cpu to phenom or fx later down the line along with gpu.
i'd like a case that i do not need to add fans to straight away. i assume it's not the end of the world if i do though.
is it worth getting one with a front usb 3.0 port?
pc is used mainly for web, word, powerpoint, excel and light gaming (rpgs)
budget? i'd love one for £10, but iguess that's unreasonable. it's my first build if that helps with choice.
Look for the cheapest cases you can find on Newegg.com, Tigerdirect.com, Superbiiz.com, or similar websites. As for a particular case, look for the ones that are rated well. A quick google search shows that you can get a microATX Rosewill Ranger case with two fans already in it for $40 at Newegg.com, and it's rated 4 out of 5 stars. Just visit the websites. They'll tell you all about them.
