Well currently i have an antec 902 case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129058&Tpk=antec%20902

I love the case but its loud with all the fans and super heavy to carry to lan parties =(
I looking into getting possibly a smaller case for easy carrying and light weight design.
My current system is:
Amd Phenom x6 1055t
Asus M4A79XTD EVO Motherboard
XFX ATI HD 5850
Western Digital 500gb Hard Drive
Corsair xms3 4gb 1600mhz
BFG 1000w Power Supply
Antec 902 Case

But i wanna find a low costing case that will fit an h50 and my upgraded graphics card setup to 2 hd 5850 cf?

Please Help!

You basically need an aluminum chassis. I used to have a lian li PC60 and that sucker was pretty light. If you can find an antec Lanboy 2, that was also a very light chassis. old school but light.

Well, I have a recommendation but I don't know about the graphics cards:

Its definitely a budget case but was a pleasure to work with and is very light and with a sturdy carrying handle. Its micro atx.

Here's a lanbox that is not too pricey:

Here's a page of micro atx desktop cases, some with handles:

I used one of the Apevia boxes for a build, and it was a PITA but everything fit. Think it was micro atx though..

The problem of course will be the video cards and PSU that they require. I think the lanbox may be able to handle both.
