What Case & Power Supply?

Postposted on Fri Oct 28, 2011 3:50 pm

Hi,

Building a new computer and need advise on Case & Power Supply to buy; I'm shopping at NewEgg.

Build is based on the utility player http://techreport.com/articles.x/21876/4, but with different RAM (specs below). I don't like the case they recommend (yeah it's ugly - sorry vanity) so thus this post.

I've used this case in the past but that was for a 1156 build with Radeon 5700; concerned that won't be enough for this rig:
Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129024&Tpk=Sonata%20III%20500

I like the look of flashy cases, perhaps something like this, only problem is that this is kind of pricey: Anyone know of a better value?
Antec Twelve Hundred V3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129100&Tpk=Antec%20Twelve%20Hundred%20V3
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 750W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182133&Tpk=Rosewill%20HIVE%20Series%20HIVE-750%20750W

Also, if you know of any combo deals for these at NewEgg please point them out, that would be much appreciated. I'm planning to buy the processor, Core i5 2500K LGA 1155 Boxed Processor at MicroCenter though: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0354589 since it is much cheaper.

Thanks in advance for the help!
