Default What is a good case that not $200

I loved my Antec P-180 and it was quite ,but it was just too small for my two GTX 280s' I could get it in there but it was such a tight fit.I bought a tempest but it is loud or at least to me after being used to my P-180.I have looked at the Antec 1200 but I have heard it is a great case but it is loud.I have looked at the coolermaster Haf 992 but if I want to add a third GTX 280 it want fit with mt Gigabyte EX58-UD5.The antec 1200 has plenty of room ,does anyone have this case and is it loud.

Yea the antec 1200 is a bit loud but you won't find many if any with the air flow, and cooling. I have a lian li mid tower as well, but for the money the antec is better imo especially for under $200 full tower.

Here is a worklog from my antec 1200 mod, I really suggest making a chamber like I did if you have any mod skills..

Does anyone have the CoolerMaster HAF 992 it seems to get a lot of good reviews and it has three 220mm fan so they dont have to spin fast to put out a lot of air and it has good cable management.

How about the Antec P190(should provide better cooling and more room for your graphics cards)?
