Windows 7: is this case any good?

Also have a look at cases that are just outside your budget. You just may find something that fits all your requirements that may be only 10 to 15 pound more.

Antec, Zalman, Cooler Master, Thermaltake all make great cases that should be within your budget. Have a look and post back your findings!

After a lot of thinking I have decided to leave it for now and in the near future I will het the corsiar obsidian 800D
I have decided to go for this because I want to leave plenty of room for new components.
When I get the case I will post some pics onto this thread so keep watching!
Please post your views and I know it is a big leap in size and price.

Hey Ash.

The Corsair Obsidian 800D is a great case, for sure, but it's really pricey.. if you need lots of rooms, i'd suggest a Cooler Master HAF X, here:

Cooler Master RC-942-KKN1 HAF X Full Tower Black: Computers & Accessories

It's almost 100 pounds cheaper and it's still a very high quality Case, and you could use the 100 pounds on another component, maybe a SSD or another of your choice :) take a look at it

Here's the official site: HAF X - Cooler Master - Leading Provider of Computer Case | Cooler | Power Supply

Here's a review video: YouTube - Cooler Master HAF X - Extreme Buyer's Guide (NCIX Tech Tips #67)

WOW! Talk about going from one extreme to the other!
Great choice on the Obsidian…one of the best cases out there in my opinion.

As Punkster mentioned, the HAF X is another great case if you don’t mind the aggressive looks (compared to the Obsidian). The Obsidian was at the top of my list when I was recently shopping for a new case. But a local store had the HAF X on sale and the price was just too good to pass up.

Now that you’ve set a more flexible budget, you have so much more to choose from. Take your time and feel free to ask for advice. In the meantime…check out the Thermaltake level 10. $800.00!!!! Level 10 Now that is extreme!!

Yes, the HAF-X is a great consideration as it will save you a fair amount of money and still offer the space and features of the Corsair 800D. Also, consider some of the other high quality cases like the Corsair 600T. It offers lots of high end features, but in a mid size case. I went with a larger case then normal this last time (Antec P182) and in the end, it is really just too big. I wish that it was smaller in size.

That Corsair 650D looks pretty darn nice. I love the 800D, but it's way, way, way too big for me. Just saw a magazine ad for the 650D in Maximum PC and am going to do some research on it. About $200 at NewEgg.
