    Case recommendations.

    Ok i thought before i pick a case id ask here for recommendations instead of just asking which is best of 3.

    So looking for motherboard which has good airflow, under £70, sidewards hard drive cage (not needed but would be good), maybe psu on bottom (not needed but would be good), able to fit a 8800 gts (dont want a small case that it wont fit in.

    Btw i use aircooling so doesnt need to fit water cooling.

    Thanks.

    Below is a slight variation of the PC-7B with 2 x 120mm fans, 2 x 80mm fans and a couple of other differences (including a removable MB tray):

    LIAN LI PC-60B PLUS II

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112100


    Others cases (but slightly above your budget by ~£10 -maybe less if you shop around) include:

    Antec P182 Gun Metal Black
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129025

    NZXT LEXA Black
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146018

    AKASA Eclipse-62
    Not listed on newegg

    GIGABYTE 3D AURORA
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233002
    This won't fit an 8800GTX but a 8800GTS is ok.


    I gave links to newegg not to purchase from but for reference since they have a lot of pictures of each case (including annotations) and I thought the customer feedback might be useful.
