Default Re: Cases!

You want to get a case that is an ATX becasue that is your motherboard form factor.

Please let us know when you find one

most cases will fit ATX, and microatx these days, but yeah, you'll want to look for one that says ATX formfactor. what kind of processor are you running? Make sure that the case you choose will fit your cooling needs also, if it comes with a power supply make sure that it is what you need, like the wattage.

Well my case right now doesn't give me good cooling it only has a PSU fan and a CPU fan!!!!
I'm using a P4 2.8GHz with HT, 512RAM and a 9200 but i got an X800 lying in a box.Thing is i want a better looking case with nice cooling and a PSU that will take the X800 a friend said it needs 300w itself!
Heres two cases i got my eye on
