Antec Two Hundred Case Review

PC gaming has never been an inexpensive proposition. The cost of processing power, for both CPU and GPU, may have gone down in cost per GigaFLOP, but the price tag to play the latest, coolest, PC game has stayed relatively constant. Fortunately, for those on a budget, things are looking up lately. One reason is that reasonably priced and even budget priced gaming cases are now available. Antec has just come to the rescue with their new Two Hundred model mid-tower gaming case.
