As the title says. Any good quality cases for a black and white build? My max is $100USD. I will be installing an Nzxt hue plus so please make sure I can install that.

Yes, is there any way to determine which case will be the easiest to build in? I've heard that the s340 and Enthoo pro are easy... I'm not sure if any components will interfere in that category. If you'd like I can show you the part list to my future first build to help me decide?

As you can see, I'm going for a black and white build. I'm not sure which case has the most room for cable management, so it's hard to choose. Also, the price for the Gtx 1070 is a place holder. I plan to either get the Evga Gtx 1070 sc account 3.0 or the RX 480

Feel free to critique it as you please, as it will most likely result in improving my build! :)

By the way, I was looking at your account (not creepy lol) and I saw all of your amazing moments! You got to meet jayztwocents! Nice, and also won a case! Even better! P.S trust me when I say I'm 14yr/old, and I am not sure if it's easy to build a PC even though many people say it is. Did it look easy to you when jay was building it? Have you had experience building a PC, and was it harder than you anticipated? I'm sorry if these are too many questions but I am really excited about my first PC and want to make sure I'm confident in the difficulty level, and nothing goes wrong...

Hey, thanks for checking out my profile. Seeing Jay was great and it seemed easy enough. I haven't built a computer yet myself, but I'm about to order my parts. Hype. Anyways, the hardest part imo is plugging in all the cables on the motherboard and the cable management. Hope this helps andplease feel free to ask more questions. However, I'm about to go to bed so if I don't answer in 8 hours

It's okay! And thanks for the help you have provided so far! I though the cpu was the hardest to install due to fragile pins, but guess that's only my nervousness on the whole matter. Good night!
