So I am wondering what is best for gaming. I going to put a Radeon HD 6870, 600 watts Corsair, and a Phenom II x4 965. Plus 8gb of ram.

This is pretty much the whole thread. ▼
GAMMA Classic Series ATX Mid Tower Interior Steel Chassis (Black)
or
Antec Three Hundred ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case
Thus is thy whole thread aboot. ▲

The Gamma is just 10$ but the Antec has 2 fans!
I am planning to overclock the Phenom.
But I think the Gamma is more good looking with the old arcade look.

Antec 302 ? It is a really good cheap case:

Oh yeah, and I checked out the GAMMA case in person before, it was very thin and flimsy...

Sorry only amazon. Forgot to add that xD Also I don't plan to like step on it or something :p 
Also that case is 20 more than the Antec 300. My budget is $550 and that brings it to $600.
The Gamma and the Antec are somewhere $7 difference!

Then you could try an Antec ONE:

About the same price as your other cases.

I vote for the Antec cases. They are a lot more sturdy. I just couldn't understand how flimsy the NZXT case was, especially given its size. It is a good 2.5 lbs lighter than the Antec 300, and you can tell...

EDIT: It is not just about the fact that you won't step on the case, on a lot of the thinner cases, screwing in screws to hold the GPU, cards, etc sometimes results in permanently stripped screw holes. And thinner cases vibrate, rattle a lot more.

Anything else that would make it more than weight? Or are they the same thing?

Plus it is $3 cheaper :p 


There you go. The Antec ONE is lighter because it is smaller physically. But the 300 is a really nice looking case too. 302 is the 300's successor.

BUT, go with the 300, it saves you quite a bit of money for a budget build, and it is heavy and well made.
