Default Can someone recommend a case?

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a case for my next (first) build, and I'm coming up short. What I need is one that will fit a 9800 GX2 without any modifications, good cooling, and I would love a side window. Also, if this is available on Newegg that would be great!

Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions? Thanks for the help!

Possibly a NZXT Tempest or a Antec 900.

Or if you have the money go with a thermaltake armor series.

I would prefer to stick to $100-130 but if it's worth it, anything under $200 should do.

Thanks again!

Do you want a big case or a something thats big enough but not to big?

Do you want a big case with good cooling or a mid case with good cooling?

Either or, go with the NZXT Tempest or Antec 900 like I had said before, great GREAT cooling on both of them.

If you want some extra room, go with the ThermalTake Armor Series, great cases also, but HUGE.

I'm looking at the Tempest, it looks pretty good.

As for size, I'm not really concerned. I have plenty of space, and no real preference. I guess whichever gets the job done will be fine.

SurgeVel sells NZXT cases here for a discount as he's a NZXT authorized dealer, maybe ask him about a deal on a Tempest
