I have 3 cases in mind for my build I am going to make soon:
The BitFenix Shinobi Windowed @ £60
The Corsair 200R Windowed @ £45
Or The Corsair 450D @ £90
I was going to go for the Bitfenix Shinobi Windowed, but I don't think the window will be too good, because of how small it is; so I had a look at the Corsair 450D. I like this case, especially the big window, but then a friend showed me that the Corsair 200R was half the price, and had pretty much exactly the same specs. Everything about the Corsair 200R seems great, except for the window seems quite small, and the front cooling surely won't be as good as the 450D (but the Bitfenix Shinobi Windowed has no side OR front cooling at all).
So what's the catch with the Corsair 200R? Or is it just a great priced case?
Also, how much of the motherboard, ram and graphic card(s) will you be able to see with the window on the Bitfenix Shinobi Windowed and the Corsair 200R, looking from about 45 degrees(ish) from the front? Is it just me, because the companies who make them surely can't be stupid enough to make a mistake like that.
