Help Choosing A Case.

I'm looking for a new case for better airflow, cable management, and can handle the length of an ATI Radeon HD 5850. I rather not mod the case but get a new one because the one I have would need alot of work. The second reason for not modding is because I might give that one to a friend when he gets a computer and he doesn't use a computer as much. I do have a price range free to 160 dollars but free being a better price ;) . I have been told to get COOLER MASTER Storm Sniper, COOLER MASTER HAF 932, COOLER MASTER HAF 922, Thermaltake Element G, and I was looking at too Corsair Graphite Series 600T. Which one do you suggest or have any other cases with high airflow and great cable management.

i have a coolermaster HAF 922... its wicked. spots for ur cables, tooless hard drive bays, high air flow, 2 x 200mm fans and more in the back XD.

i actually did a review of it on my site, http://www.malcolmlrobertson.com/review-co...master-haf-922/

its a great case and i love it. one thing i dont like about it, more optical drive bays then i want. i rather more 3.5inch drive bays :P. still good case :D

The Antec P180 series of cases are generally awesome.

They don't have the most drive bays though (4 x 5.25", 6 x 3.5" + 1 floppy bay), this is the sacrifice that must be paid for better hard disk cooling and noise dampening.

Edit: forgot the link: http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?Family=ODI=

Double edit: All the drive bays are removable for easy HD install, this also opens up the possibility of using extra giant graphics cards has the bay that holds two HDs lines up with the top PCIe slot, can't fit two giant cards though.

my mate has the last one. he took it into my diploma class today XD

its pretty big and i'd say, if ur looking for hard drive space.... and lots of room for, just say, V6 or V8 or V10 CPU cooler... it'd fit with no worries :P.

it looks good but its not my style, not a very lan friendly case XD. its heavy but built very well

Cases like this often are good ornaments and aren't actually particularly good computer case.

Dear god, that looks like an industrial design student ate some bad shrooms.

As for cases, I like Antec ones, I have a 300 with a EVGA 285 GTX in it, but for you the 900 would probally work ok.

Well for Antec I have the 900 but for me the the cable management sucks plus the video card i have i can barely plug it in and if i go for bigger then it will kill it. That and i dont like the hard drive thing too. Yes it has nice airflow but bad everythign else.

Holy mother of God, its look more like a spaceship.

Its a very unique design, never seen anything like this before.

But nice one!
