Thought I'd create a topic here too despite receiving a reply about cases, cooling and sound card advice in another forum which wasn't receiving many bites. What have here for you guys is a "challenge" if you will.
Below is a condensed version of the spec for my ever changing new behemoth along with the total costs of the top 2 places I've shopped around at and, the spec of my current machine.
I need a case which is £50~150, no larger than 580mm (58cm) in height and 460~480mm (46~48cm) in depth. So far the cases I've been recommended are Coolermaster HAF 932 and CM Storm Sniper, niether of which are adequate.
