So I may have mentioned before, I just recently built a new PC. I went from an Intel Core2Quad Processor to a 3rd generation i5, and at the core, it’s plenty quick. I had to upgrade my motherboard for obvious reasons, and doubled up my RAM. (from 8 to 16GB, although, the guy at Microcenter gave me PC1333, I can live with it for now) For financial reasons, I held out on a new case, and video card. I think I have narrowed my case to either the Fractal Design Define R4, and the Antec P280.
Fractal Design Define R4
Both have very minimalistic design, and it’s more geared toward’s quietness. Tom’s Hardware recently had a quite case round up, and the Define came up on top. I just can’t forget Antec though, as I had an SX1030B in the past, and I absolutely loved it. I had to let it go since I received a Thermaltake Xaser III courtesy of Thermaltake. I looked at some of their (Thermaltake) offering’s and it was too loud in style.
In any ‘case’, I hope to pick up either one of the above listed cased on my short list, and then move on to picking out a video card.
My current case – Thermaltake Xaser III
My old favorite – Antec SX1030B
