  1. What would be a good gaming case for a new pc that I am planning to build?

    That depends. Are you looking for something geared more toward performance or more for looks?

    Cuz if you're looking for a performance case, I recommend the Antec Performance 1 P180 from NewEgg.com.

    Anyway, good luck with building your system :)

    The case m gonna buy is the Xclio A380BK
    It has 2 250mm fans!
    and u can add 120mm on it

    The only problem is the price and the reviews say the front grill touches the fans and also how the fans might die on people or leds might break from touching the fan

    So once i get it i will try to secure everything and have the fans on low settings for the first month

    Besides this thing must have some brutal cooling with those fans

    Better cases out there for the same money in my opinion.

    That's a cool case. Another plus it's from Antec

    A good case is any case that allows you to get to your hardware easily and allows for adequate airflow to cool. Adequate airflow can be achieved without huge fans or loud fans. Your components will be OK if they run warmer than 2 degrees above ambient.

    LOL - due to the reviews I'd get the Antec! :p
