As many gamers know, a custom configured PC is almost always more superior to a run of the mill PC picked up directly from a showroom. When we assemble our PCs we often boast about the RAM, Motherboard, GPU and what not. But we often forget a very important peripheral. The cabinet!

 

The cabinet is as much a fashion statement as it is a place to protect your so precious hardware. Especially in India where the temperature is high and the air is dusty, a good cabinet is very important as most of us don’t live in a 24×7 Air conditioned environment.

The Antec GX 200 Cabinet is a Mid Tower sized entry level cabinet designed specifically for Gaming. It has some generous proportions which allows the installation of a 380mm graphics-card, and motherboards of ATX, mATX and mini-ITX size. It also has 7 x PCI-E Expansion slots and space for 4 x 3.5”Tool less HDDs and 1 x 2.5” SSD to satisfy most gamers.

3 USB slots are located at the top of the cabinet for easy access (1x USB3.0+2 x USB 2.0).

Antec has been very considerate and thoughtful in providing a separate place to keep all our peripherals (Cellphones/ HDDs) convienietly.

Finally, the Antec GX 200 comes with a distinctive front grill that improves the air flow. Depending upon the model, you can select the red or blue lighting option. My personal recommendation is to pick the red, it looks much cooler!

In conclusion, I’d say the Antec GX 200 isn’t the fanciest cabinet out in the market. Customisation options are limited to the colour of the original model that you buy and it lacks some fancy LED changing options.

 

However, it definitely satisfies the needs of the average gamer! If you’re looking to build your first PC and need a good cabinet, then your search ends here!
