So I am attempting to build my first computer. All I have so far is a motherboard and Im looking for a case. I think I want this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156062

I dont think I really want to spend any more on a case but do you guys have any suggestions for better cases for the same money? Thank you!

i would go with this one here

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119196

i just did a build with this case its very nice. I would stay away from cases that come with a power supply mainly because the power supplies are off brands and not that reliable, i have had bad experiences with off brand PSUs

If you are planning on getting that case you should get the one with No power supply... The thing that comes with them is JUNK... I gave the one that came with mine to my brother and it lasted about 6 weeks.... Cases are really personal preference... I personally have that case only the extreme black version which in my opinion looks 100% better but I am now looking at buying a full tower with better cable management. That case is HORRIBLE for cable management so if you do get it get a modular power supply

I also have the same case that Poker has and I will second the fact that it's cable management sucks. I'll be moving to a full tower as soon as I have the money and time.
