Hi,
I am thinking of building a PC and need to decide on a case around the 40 Pound mark, I would prefer if it were on ebuyer, scan, amazon or dabs but any trusted UK site would be fine
The cases I am currently looking at are:
- Coolermaster Elite 430
- Antec Three Hundred
- Antec one
- Thermaltake Commander (Snow Edition)
- Bitfenix Shinobi - White - No Window (A bit over budget but I like the look of it)

Some of the Parts I am planning on using are:
- i5 3570K
- Gigabye GA-Z77-D3H
- Sapphire HD 7770 1GB DDR5
- 8GB Vengeance RAM 1600 Mhz

I am not planning on overclocking

Thanks in advance, and any suggestions on parts would also be welcome as my budget is about 450 Pound

If you're not *ever* going to OC, which is kinda nutty, then drop down to a 3470 CPU and a mobo with a B75 or H77 chipset depending on other needs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_1155) to save some cash.

If you are gaming you need to throw the difference into a much, much better GPU (assuming you have or will have a 1080p display someday).

Think the Shinobi gets good marks from a lot of folks.

Thanks for the reply,
I'd prefer to have the choice to overclock at some point in the future in case I change my mind, which is why I went for the 3570k, and would rather opt to have a better CPU and upgrade the GPU later when I have more money.

Also, is the Shinobi worth the extra money you pay for it?
