Default Re: Are Full Tower Cases Neccessary?????????

yea im also building a pc and am confused about which case to get, i wanted a raidmax smilodon because it seems pretty nice but i may think of upgrading to a fulltower because im either getting an 8800 gts or gtx, anybody got any suggestions on a nice looking case w/ a window and all the goodies like LED's but is still reliable and wont burn up my pc?, but otherwise i think fulltowers are worthwhile because in the future you wont be obligated to buy a new case to make a large upgrade

Xion has a decent mid tower with lights, a window, and stuff. I too am Hi-jacking this thread because of the posting problem. I am buying a new comp tomorrow and i was wondering weather I should get an antec 900, NZXT Zero, or a sunbeam freezing-storm with two more 120mm fans. Thanks and sorry.

there is a newegg coupon code that makes this full tower case 44 bucks.

Newegg.com - AeroCool SPIRAL GALAXIES Black/Silver SECC 0.8mm / Front Panel ABS, Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

supposed to have 2 feet long psu to mobo cable though, i'm going to check my psu and if its long enough then i might give that one a go, a nice full tower for 44 bucks.

I would have to suggest the cooler master stacker... good price, and LOTS of room...

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER CM Stacker STC-T01-UW Black/ Silver Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

Now this is the one I have... but the stacker was a case I was considering...

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE TJ09-BW Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

I think towers are great, just as long as you don't mind the size. I got a thermaltake mozart tower, and its plenty big. You get great cooling, more expansion potential, bigger area to work in, more options for liquid cooling, and of course its BIGGER
