    Case suggestions.

    I am ordering parts as of right now, and I really can't decide what I want for the case. The motherboard is an Asus Sabertooth z87, the GPU is an EVGA 770GTX. The GPU and the mobo look quite good together, but alas I can't seem to decide what case, nor what color lighting I would like.

    So, suggestions? I have been looking at the Corsair 750D, Coolermaster Storm stryker, and the nzxt Phantom.

    I would go with the phantom as it has it's HUE lighting system, so you can have any color you want really, and when you get bored, just pick another color! It also has enough room for some awesome setups, that is if you chose the right case.

    Examples of the HUE Lighting system:

    Basically everyone's first build will have flashy neon 1337 lights on it. I prefer a more clean look personally.
