Default Case Question

Hello guys,

Its me again, just about to order my build and I have one more slight concern.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811103011

Here are the two cases I am looking at. Just wondering which you all think would be better (The 140 is about as high as I can go).

Note: I will probably have to remove the side fan of the second case as it will interfere with heat sink.

Thanks again for all the help and sorry for the trouble.

You can find better cases than that.

Will a midtower fit a GTX 260 and a V8 heatsink adequately?

Yes, a mid tower will fix a 260 and the V8. The two I recommended will definitely fit the two.

Wow, I feel like a cheapskate when it comes to computer cases! I keep seeing posts with big elaborate and (in my opinion) expensive cases. I spent somewhere between one and two thousand on the parts for my latest build, but put it all in a $50 Cooler Master Elite 335 computer case!

Just call me Ebeneezer computer case scrooge!

I have the second one, i love it to death, but the big side fan makes it unable to hold a bigger heatsink like the V8
