Gaming PC Cases need some advice

psgarrett, Aug 9, 6:22am
Just finished deciding all my parts for a gaming rig now just need to find a case can anyone recommend me any good cases/brands for a gaming rig for a good price do you have to buy a expensive case or can you actually get really good ones for cheap looking for a case that will have a viewing window and good air ventilation and with enough USB ports and inputs etc.

My favourite at the mo is the Fractal Design Define R4 in white. Not the cheapest but very well built and good ventilation.

I also like the Bitfenix Prodigy, but it's micro-ATX.

You might find it hard to find and R4 these days. The R5 is a newer, slightly improved version which is more easily available.

e. Computerlounge has both the R4 and R5 available

Im currently using the Fractal Design Define R5 Black.

It is easy to build in, has alot of water cooling options as well if thats what your after. I really liked that all the ODD & HDD bays were removable and could be rearranged.
air filters are easy to clean too, and quite alot of room behind the motherboard for hiding cables.

I guess in the end, it comes down to personal preference. I don't like cases with alot of flashy lights blinking at me, so this case was an easy choice.
I also like the Corsair Obsidain 550D case.

There are heaps of good cases around. For my current pc I'm using a nzxt phantom 410 which I've found to be good but it doesn't have a very big side window

Really all you need to worry about is the size - to fit the GPU, and if you like it.
I have a Coolermaster Diamond Plate Stacker case, at the time. Modified a bit since.
