Help choosing a case and monitor

#1-CJF-Posted 4/13/2014 9:16:01 PM
Hi guys,

I'm looking for a case in the $50-$60 price range, and the cheaper the better. The cases I've been considering are the Corsair 200R, The CM Elite 430, and the Antec Three Hundred Two.I would prefer one with a side window but it's not absolutely necessary. Good cable management is a big plus and good airflow is essential.

At first glance the CM Elite 430 seems to be the best option for me, but it seems a little on the small side. The case will need to accommodate a 4670k with a Hyper212 Evo and a GTX 760. I will consider other cases as well if you have any recommendations.

For the monitor I'm thinking about going with the Asus VS247H-P 23.6" http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VS247H-P-23-6-Inch-Full-HD-LED-Lit/dp/B005BZNDS0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397058407&sr=8-1&keywords=Asus+VS247H-P

The monitor seems like a good option for me because I will be gaming at 1080p. This monitor in particular appealed to me because it has a 2ms response time, it's an IPS panel, and it has both DVI and HDMI ports. If there is a better option out there for a similar price, please let me know what it is and your reasoning as to why it would be the better option

Thanks in advance!

That is the case I have and for the price I'm not sure there is much better. It's big and there is a ton of room on the inside for cable management. I've never had problems with airflow, and there are dust filters on the front and bottom for intake fans. It comes with 2 fans in the front and 1 in the back and has a window.

It also fits my 212 Plus so it will definitely fit a 212 Evo

TC, I'd say you have it pretty much nailed.

I have a 200r and it's actually quite good, despite the plastic front. It's pretty roomy and have some decent cable management.

That monitor is so tempting. All the talk of how good these IPS monitors are is starting to wear me down.

But I would miss this super convenient remote control for this TV I'm using...
