HAF 912, 922, 932 or HAF X Antec 900 Two, Antec 1100, Antec 1200 Fractal Design Define R3(Or any of the other fractal design cases) Cosmos II Corsair 650D, 800D, 600T, 500R Silverstone Raven Lian-Li's are good NZXT Phantoms are good Stay away from: Raidmax, Antec 900, Logisys, Apevia. That's my 2 cents. | Report abuse Reply to cmcghee358 twigz18 January 9, 2013 8:10:25 AM well budget is $675, i'm not sure about the different styles. Can any of the cases work? | Report abuse Reply to twigz18 cmcghee358 Power supply Expert January 9, 2013 10:52:43 AM Yes, all the cases listed are good in my opinion | Report abuse Reply to cmcghee358 twigz18 January 9, 2013 1:02:07 PM Oh I'm sorry when I said $675, I meant in total for the parts and the case. So my budget for the case would be $675 - 582 = $93. Sorry for the misunderstanding.. | Report abuse Reply to twigz18 sfvirgo86 January 9, 2013 4:17:13 PM phantom 410 comes in at $99 on newegg, maybe less somewhere else, i think its one of the best in that price range and it comes in a multitude of colors | Report abuse Reply to sfvirgo86 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Need advice on a case> Related ressources: ForumNeed a new case , and advice please?
