I've now been researching on gaming cases to upgrade my computer but i cant completely decide wich one i shall chose.

I'm thinking between these 3 cases can some one tell me wich one to chose or if there should be other cases on the marked wich will better then pleas tell me

here's the different cases:

1. CM storm tropper http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/Trooper/
2. Raven rv01 www.google.no/search?q=usa&sugexp=chrome,mod=15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
3. Aerocool Xpredator X3 http://www.aerocool.us/pgs/pgs-b/x3devilred.htm

Nb i don't want the case to cost more then 260 USD

The RV01 and Storm Trooper are both great cases, choose based on which specific features you want.

CM Storm Trooper looks pretty sweet.
Have you considered NZXT Phantom?

The RV01 is the definitely the most unique one but the CM storm trooper is a best. But personal I would go with the RV01

You are not far off from a Cosmos 2 case. That is even better than the Storm Trooper. I'm thinking about getting one and having a window made for the side.

I have been thinking about the Cosmos 2 case but the price is 200USD more (460USD for the Cosmos 2) for it and i don't want to spend that much on just the case.

Goes for $379 at work. Every once in a while it goes on sale for about $300.

I think i'll go for the Storm Trooper case sins it locks more open and it's easier4 to transport and got more bays but before i make my choice i just wonder if any of you know if i can easily fit a 2-4x120mm radiator in the case without modding?

^this NZXT switch 810 looks simply awesome, especially the one with gun metal color paint. I really like how it looks simple to clean the filters, plus built in card reader and many awesome features. Apparently I cant figure out how to embed video here.

Check out the Azza series 9000. I built a system around one, and liked it so much I think I will be buying one for myself. It's VERY customizable, lots of fans with ports for more, and just looks like it means business. It is a little loud (LEDs on front and top) and doesn't have a full window, but it's also made of heavy steel and you can easily swap it around for ATX & BTX and lots of cooling methods, including HUGE watercooling radiators. Well within your ballpark.

Do you know what i think i will buy the Cosmos 2 after all since it is so humongus big and has good place for rads and easy to shift components. even thought it's over my budget i believe it's worth the money. :D

I have Antec 1200 - Awesome case, was not too expensive. What is really nice in Xpredator is that front panel has fan adjustment knob and usb 3.

I too, have the Antec 1200 (V3 version). It's been a very good case. I just a pain to clean the filters because theres too many thumbscrews to get to them. For the most part its an awesome case, looks sweet too. :D

But about the Cosmos 2, thats definitely nice if a little on the huge side. I just wouldnt wanna get something like that unless I was gonna max out the hardware and put radiators everywhere.

You have to decide for yourself which case you want the most out of all. Know what your looking to get out of the case. If your just looking for one that has the most space for your components go for that one. If you want a case for great airflow or liquid cooling choose that one etc.. Make sure your Power supply has enough cables etc.. to attach your fans or liquid cooling radiator.
