Hey everyone, this will be my first post in the MPC forums, so it's only fitting that it's about my first rig build.
To introduce myself, I'm Sean; i'm 21 and am a Marine currently deployed to Afghanistan. With some of this income, I am looking to build a beast. So to answer your first question: I don't have much of a price limit. I would like to invest most of my earnings, but if there is pricey case that can bring a rig to the next level, i'm open to it.
So the case I am looking for is one that is the most suited for expansion. To prevent myself from spending more money on more rigs later, I want a case with the room and features to swap and add hardware (And also because I get bored easily). So what are your suggestions? Does a "huge" case necessarily mean it's suitable for expansion options? Someday down the road I may want a case that can house multiple video and audio cards with upgraded inputs and a bigger mobo to handle two(three?) screens (The works).
I'm not too worried about the number of stock fans or cooling options. My line of work means I will only have a few hours to play a day, so full 12 hour day binges will be few and far between; no need to worry about overheating.
As for aesthetics, i'd love a side window and LED lighting options. Something I can really deck out in a very intricate and sophisticated way. So that when I turn it on, I get that tingly feeling every time.
So far, i've got a eye on
