There is no reason to have a $300 case. Ideally, you'll want to spend under $150 or even $100. Cooler Master HAF XM is also a good midtower case. The price difference between the 670 and 680 isn't worth it. Another good alternative is the 7970. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedIs this gaming build ok?
