Hello, i have yet to find the perfect case for my build. The case must be able to support 2 gigabyte gtx 660 ti 3gb oc editions, a atx 1155 mobo, 3 5.25" bays and atleast one 3.5" bay on the front, they also must be on pccasegear.com im looking at something like this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... but apparently it has terrible cable management. Im looking for a mid atx case, that will support 2 way sli with massive gigabyte 3gb 660 tis, and all the bays on the front of the system with preferably blue leds if it has any.

So basically a case like the elite 430 but with better cable management. (Or is the cable management good in this case? Ive heard it isnt tho...)

Kinda complicated question, but ok

Interested in those acrylic clear cases too!

This is the best value silent case there is according to tomshardware, I can only recommend it. I got one on my own and there is nothing to put a finger on, it's just overall great.

Fan controller, dust filters, a lot of cooling options, great built quality, cable management is excellent and it just looks sexy. It weighs about 12 kilograms that is my only complaint.

It will hold all your hardware. I'm using a GTX 670 right now and there is plenty of space. You can even detach the harddrive cage for very long GPUs and better air flow.

The corsair 200R is a sleek and cheap case with decent airflow and has USB 3.0.

And dont buy 2 GTX 660 Ti's Buy a single GTX 680's. If u buy a single 680 then there will be less power consumption, less heat and your pc will be more stable and more quiet. And a single 680 is about the same performance as a 2 660Ti's but is a lot cheaper.

It's not better than two 660 ti, also the GTX 670 has the best value.

So the GTX 680 is kinda out of the picture, if we're talking price/performance.

But GTX 660 Ti's does cost more than a GTX 680 and more heat and power consumption and noise will be produced.

The TDP difference is 20 watt 150 watt vs 170 watt.

The heat produced isn't really anything to worry about, it's a minor difference.

but there are 2 GTX 660 ti's so that is 300W vs 170W
And in any computer part, the less heat the better.

Sorry I thought you were comparing a GTX 660 ti to a GTX 670. I thought you just weren't understanding my intentions in the first post. Seems like I'm the one doing it.
