    Hi

    Can anyone point me to a good computer case that can fit a GTX 1080 graphics card and has a bay slot for an optical drive? Also, I need an extra PCI slot for a wireless adapter - or one built in?

    Also which processor should I get? Intel i7 8700k or the AMD Ryzen 7 Second Gen?

    What is your budget for the case?

    My budget is £50 to £!00 and i like the mid-tower sized cases like the Dell XPS 8920 case for instance.

    I think Dell XPS is micro atx tower?
    Make sure you get m-atx motherboard if you go for that.

    Here are some of the case I like

    Corsair 350D is only £45 from Scan, it is a very good price

    What about one with a side window? Are there any cases with optical drive bays that have a side window?

    I personally don't like case with LED or side windows and want something silent as my PC in my bedroom and sometime I leave it on at night.

    Here are few cases with good reviews for its price from my memory. You need to double check.

    be quiet! mentioned above have side panel option.

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro M - there is tempered glass version, but far more expensive

    This is probably one of the most recommended case by various review expert, but it is over your budget.

    I like the black/orange one. I'd probably get that one.
