Default Antec Or Thermaltake

I'm currently going to build a gaming pc and i was having a hard time choosing between
The Antec Nine Hundred or the Thermaltake Kandalf
They both seem similar and both seem to have good cooling

What do you guys suggest? THNX

If price and performance are you main concerns than definately get the Nine Hundred. I don't think you would be disappointed with that purchase
