I wanted to see if anyone had some opinions on this case. I feel like downgrading the case cost in my new build, so I can fit in a better GPU. The current case sitting in my cart is the Corsair 500R, retailing on Newegg for $140. The ThermalTake, however, is only $100. This would let me upgrade from a 7870 to a 7950 and stay in budget. Any thoughts?

Have you considered the 400R?

It's ~$100 and basically a 500R without the 200mm fan. (It has the space for two 140mm or two 120mm fans on the side.)

I like being able to filter the air coming into the case and 120mm filters are easy to get cheap. Even 140mm filters are popping up.

I never spend to much money on a case, if your looking for some more recommendation though my friend bought this case not to long ago: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... from what I've seen it's very nice, it seems sturdy and it cools his stuff very very well.

I never really had anything against thermaltake but I hear bad things about their cases, my case is a really cheap diablo tek though and I like it enough, so I'm not sure how bad they really are.

I have considered it, and now I think I will just save a little more for the 500R, just because it comes in white :)
