    First PC Build In Over 11 Years - Need Assistance


    I use a PC for multiple tasks including some old single person games like GTA IV and Battlefield Bad Company 2.

    I have selected these components thus far.,,

    Intel Core i5-12400 Desktop Processor 18M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz
    MSI MAG B660M Mortar WiFi DDR4 Gaming Motherboard
    Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 32GB (2 x 16GB) 3200MHz Kit
    Patriot P300 M.2 PCIe Gen 3 x4 256GB Low-Power Consumption (Boot drive)

    I still have to select a PS, Graphics Card and a Case but I'm stuck on the case for the MSI above.

    I would like a macro or mini tower case for the mATX motherboard above. There's some confusion on the naming nomenclature here. I keep my PC on my desk so I would rather have the I/O ports on the front so I won't have to get up. I do not like keeping the PC on the floor as it will collect more dust. I'm not partial to the RGB special effects inside the case.

    I like case but it is a mid tower. It has 2 USB 3 and 2 USB 2 ports on the front. I can work with the power button on top.
    COUGAR MX330 Mid-Tower Case Just a moment...

    Feel free to make suggestions on my PC build plans.

    Thanks!

    FWIW I just built a new PC based on an ASUS Z790 board, i7-13700K CPU and DDR5 RAM for future proofing

    Thanks for your suggestions but I'm trying to stay within my budget.
