HELP NEEDED: £50 PC Case Choice

Last response: in Systems

Hello all! :D 

I am building a new rig in the near future, but I am stuck as I cannot decide which case would allow all of my components to fit, allow room for upgrades, and allow nice air-flow (OC purposes). Could you help me decide which case would best suit my need within my budget of £50.

I live in England.

your links dont work at all but i will recommend some stuff

1: get a hyper 212 evo cooler instead. no need for the evga cooler

2: get regular gskill ripjaw 1600mhz for 41 pounds at scan. 2133mhz memory has no real advantage over 1600mhz memory

3:for the power supply, id get a xfx xxx 750w psu instead. they are semi-modular and is slightly more efficent. make sure you get the one with a black fan and not the green fan

4: id get personally get seagate 1tb 64mb since they are cheaper and perform slightly better. you do lose some warranty though

5: if you need airflow, get a fractal core 3000 case. currently sells 49.99 pounds

6: for the ssd, you can get a samsung 830 128gb at scan for 76 pounds which is a good deal
