I have almost finished with all the research required to build a gaming pc for personal use. Now the tricky part of finding a case that not only shows off all the awesome parts inside but also one that has a very sleek and stylish exterior. As of right now price is not much of an issue but at or under $200 should do the trick. I am getting an ATX mobo specifically: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard


I think a full tower will be best, just so I have really good cable management and I have plenty of room in the location I want the computer to sit. I also want something with some nice looking LED's, maybe a color that really pops in the dark: Blue, Green, Red, the usuals... I also want it to tie into my mouse and keyboard selections.

Mouse: Razer Naga Molten I love the side buttons on my current Naga(Blue) but the right click has started to go bad so I decided to do away with it.

Keyboard : Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 Love the macro buttons and the ability to set the back light colors.

So what do you guys think? Whats your favorite case, or what do you think will look great with my setup? I welcome any and all opinions! Thank you very much! =)

There are a couple of good options that you could go with and not be dissatisfied. Largely comes down to aesthetic preference at this higher end of the market.

NZXT Phantom, various colours. $120

Pretty good case that has a side window. Looks to have had a price cut recently. No LED's though, but il link to some strips you can buy further down if you want them.

Coolermaster HAF-X. $180 ($10 rebate)

Very nice case, love my one. Will fit about anything you could throw at it.

Corsair 600T, black or white. $180 ($20 rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

And the LED strips.
Bitfenix Alchemy Connect, various colours and sizes.

Though it seems the larger size popular colours (red and blue) are out of stock.

I absolutely love the looks of the NZXT Phantom that you posted, how did such a nice case slip from attention in the first place!? That front panel looks very unique and interesting. I have also been battling with just giving in and going with the HAF-X and you posting it only helps solidify it's awesomeness. Thanks for the very quick reply and the link to the LED strips, Im sure I can find many of uses for those.
