    Looking at your two choices, I`d go with the NEMESIS ELITE.

    It has better cooling via 3 120mm fans. Get it without the power supply unit(psu) and get yourself a good quality psu such as Antec/fortron/Enermax etc.

    Nice looking case BTW.

    Regards Howard :)

    Im A Medium Gamer So Cooling Isnt A Major Problem

    HI howard
    cooling isnt a major problem for me at the moment its the case that is im deciding whether to spend more money on a case that has better looks the Viper 2 one which comes with a psu or get a case that is older without psu and buy a decent one !

    I`d deffinitely recommend a case without a psu. The generic psu`s that tend to come with most cases are, to put it bluntly crap.

    A decent psu really is a good investment. It will provide stable power output and won`t fry your expensive hardware.

    Of course you could buy the case with the psu and just change out the psu.

    Regards Howard :)

    Go With The Nemesis Elite Instead Of The Viper 2

    hey howard
    so you are saying i should go with the nemesis elite because of the cooling if you read my previous thread cooling insn't a major problem for me beacause i dont overclock but WOULD YOU CHOSE THE NEMESIS ELITE over the viper 2 because it is cheaper and has ALOT better cooling? MY concern at the moment is me gettting the nemesis and then regreting that i got it because the viper 2 is a new release compared to the nemesis elite being a old case 2004 model

    At the end of the day, you`ve got to be happy with your choice.

    I was only giving you reasons why I would choose the Nemesis elite.

    If you really want the Viper, go for it. Just make sure you get a decent psu.

    Regards Howard :)
  7. Buddy, check out the Antec solo or p180.

    Theyre the best for silence and are quality built cases, i cant say the same about most.

    give them a look, theyre my favourite
