Best Case for a budget.

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:

    http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129180&Tpk=antec%20302

    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:

    http://www.amazon.com/Antec-One-Computer-Case/dp/B006TVQU6C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345336579&sr=8-1&keywords=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.
  4. 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.
