Which case is the best?

I'm looking at many cases around the 50 dollar mark and so far here are the best one I could find,

Nxzt source 210 and the elite verzion

Or the corsair spec 0-1 or 0-2

So which one will be the bext bet for around that price point. Any other recommendations are welcomed.

I personally have the spec-01 and can say that it is a wonderful case to build in and to look at. Also, the side panel is slightly tinted which gives any case lighting a pleasant glow and was very unexpected.

The source 210 is also a very solid case though not as flashy.

It really just depends on your tastes, get whichever one of those you feel is the best

Agreed. The Spec 01-2-3 are really great.

I'd get the source 210. Overall i think its better, but it only has usb2 up front and i hate that the hdd bays face that direction.... better for air flow, but more of a pain in a smaller case to install drives into.

I'd get the Spec 1 if you can't go above $50. For $60, you could get the Spec 2.

I have a SPEC-01 and it is a nice looking case however be warned, cable management is a pain in the ***, the blank side panel is very close the the motherboard mounting point so it is difficult but with patience do-able it also has clips on the 5 1/4'' bays which you need to remove or they make a horrible vibrating noise. I dont know about the NZXT Source since I have never had one. The SPEC-01 is good but be careful for these small niggles which bug me slightly

The S340 of course is better than all of them if you have some extra change / bottles kicking around.

Would be funny to make a 350 dollar build and put it in the nicest case you can find
