Hi everyone,
I'm looking to upgrade my 2012 era computer due to the video card throwing up artifacts and crashing under load recently.
My current system:
Antec Solo II
HP ZR2440w
GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Processor
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-
Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC with Boost 3GB DDR5 DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D/HDMI/DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 11197-03-40G
Crucial MX100 500gb
Western Digital Red 3 TB NAS Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, SATA III, 64 MB Cache
ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
Seasonic X750 Gold

Approximate Purchase Date: next few months
Budget Range: ~1500-2000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming
Are you buying a monitor: Not for now, maybe a surface monitor if they release one
Parts to Upgrade: Motherboard, CPU, probably RAM, GPU, ?power supply, ?case
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: microcenter, newegg
Location: MA
Parts Preferences: 3/4 prior computer builds have been intel CPU AMD GPU
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: GPU seems to be failing

I really like the Solo II but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a better similarly sized case.

Thank you!
