Best Computer Case for my Budget?
Oct 4, 2012, 2:44 AM
What is the best computer case I can get for 40-60$ before tax, shipping and handling? I'm looking for one without power-supply (logically for my price range :P)
Would it be really worth it to push the note to 100$?
Here are the parts I've bought so far:
1 x Intel Core i5 3570 Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge 6MB Retail
1 x Corsair Cooling Air Series A50 Performance CPU Cooler LGA775 LGA1155 LGA1156 LGA1366 AM2 AM3
1 x Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H WiFi ATX LGA1155 Z77DDR3 3PCI-E16 3PCI-E1 HDMI SLI SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard
1 x Patriot Viper Xtreme 8GB 2X4GB DDR3 1866MHZ PC3-15000 9-11-9-27 1.65V XMP Ready Desktop Memory Kit
1 x Zotac GeForce GTX 660 Ti
1 x Corsair Professional HX750W 750W ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 140mm Fan
1 x Intel 330 Series 180GB 2.5IN SSD MLC 25nm SATA3 Solid State Disk Drive Retail Maple Crest
Edit: I'm looking for a case with good air flow (I wont use Liquid Cooling), aesthetic and able to suppress most of the sound coming from inside (as much as possible for the price I'm able to pay).
Thanks a lot in advance

best computer case budget

How about getting a TX650W? You'll still be able to SLI the 660ti, as well this gives you a larger budget for a case!

Imicro Case decent for cooling

Here are a couple of cases in special, in the price range I'd be ready to pay. Anyone in there is really worth it? Which one would you choose?

Those all suck imo no offesnse but if i was to pick between those i would go with COOLER MASTER Storm Scout or Zalman Z11 Plus

I think I'll go with the Zalman Z11. I can get it around 45$ which is a steal. Read a couple of reviews and they are positive in majority with only a few flaws.
PS: Any idea of a case that doesn't suck then?

Zalman Z11 and HAF 912 are good budget ones about the cheapest i ever buy there best bang for buck in low budget case imo
