If you wouldn't mind maybe you could help me choose a decent case. I don't really care for looks as long as it doesn't look horrifically bad. The website I will be buying from is www.wootware.co.za
Here is a link to their case section, I would like to spend sub R750, preferrably as low as possible for a case that has some good quality. By the way, this pc will be used for gaming + school work. Also I will probably be putting a 660 ti and atx mobo in there and a 550W XFX PSU.
I think, I'm going to go with the z9 still. It looks great in term of aesthetics and the price difference between the 2 is R16, which is equivalent to $2. So, going for the cheaper won't be beneficial.
The Zalman Z9 is better, as rolli said it has better internal layout. If it helps, I have the Cooler Master 431 Elite and the way the Hard Drives are mounted interferes with the GPU and it doesn't have any cable management options so go with the Z9.
