Question Looking for a full tower case

Hi there, at the moment i'mn planning anew gaming build for all my games, internet browsing, and software.

I'm lloking for a full tower pc case that has a simple design, a case window, and is atx compatible. My budget for this is around 120 (you can go slightly higher or lower in any case)

any ideas?

P.S: I'm also looking for a good 19" or bigger monitor (here is my gpu for the connectors: HIS 6870 IceQ X Turbo X 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI Dual.. | Ebuyer.com)

Thanks

I don't know how much it would be in the uk but the cooler master HAF 932 is awesome, i have it, nice window, red light, atx compatible and awesome air flow (HAF = high air flow)

You know a full tower is Ginormous!.

Youre looking for a big mid tower.
Scan.co.uk: Fractal Design Define R3, Black Pearl, Mid Tower Case w/o PSU - FD-DEFINER3-BL
Scan.co.uk: Fractal FD-DEFINERXL-TI Design Define XL, Titanium Grey, Full Tower Case w/o PSU
Scan.co.uk: Corsair Obsidian Series 650D Black Mid Tower Case with Side Window w/o PSU - CC650DW <- Have it but alittle dissappointed with the airflow, but theyre making a mesh side panel soon.

Scan.co.uk: Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced Black Mid Tower Computer Case - RC-692-KKN2

Those are some bigger cases that are good.

might be in the same vein but the lanboy from antec is awesome for cooling purposes, the NZXT Zero 2 Craft Series Full Tower Case looks nice, i dont know anything much about it but it looks kinda kool and not the same style as the others

Lightbulb Re: Looking for a full tower case

Thanks for all your suggestions, I think I might go with the corsair 650d.
I was looking into the 800d, but it's way too expensive

What I really want out of a case Is lots of space inside, so it's not cramped.
Do you definitely think this has enough space? Cause I dont want to have all the wires inside spiralling around everywhere.

Be sure yo get a -1 model, as its got the fixed fan controller.

They plan on releasing a mesh side pannel that should result in great temps.

The case isd extremely well built, and theres plenty of space. I have a huge psu and it gobbled it right up.

Just ensure you get the -1 model.
