Hi I'm building a computer for games development and only need to buy a case and not looking to spend a fortune, after watching reviews from Gamers nexus they seem to recommend these two cases NZXT 500 or Corasir Carbide Series 270R. I see the corsair case is a little old now in comparison to the NZXT so possibly has more features and better cable management but louder. With this set up what would people recommend?
