650D or 350D ( build opinions)

Hey guys, would like to hear some input on these two builds.

Both come in at the same price and spec, just slightly different. I would like to know which you would pick and for what reasons?

350D build:https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=160486&action=wish_lists

650D build:https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=173791&action=wish_lists

Size isn't really that big a deal, but I wouldn't mind the additonal expandability of the 650D case and mobo, however the 350D gives the option to SLI/xfire with a gap beteen the two cards, this leaves space for a sound card.

Anyway, input would be muchly appreciated, have a good day :)

I personally like the 350d better and I also like the fractal design r4 windowed as well.  With the gigbyte board they have creative labs sound cards build into the sniper series motherboards.

Oh really, so the sniper has a beast audio card? I was unaware of that. thanks for the feedback :)

Well, I have a similar build. I'm using the 350D with the MSI Twin Frozr GTX 770 and a Maximus V Gene. I love the case. I recommend it highly.

I would go with the 350d build purely because the case is better imo.

Do you think the g1 sniper is a better board for mATX ? Or the Maximus gene vi ?


What would you say Makes it better?

Honestly, the rog boards are top of the line. I'll probably buy asus for the forseeable future. I'm not sure how good gigabyte boards though. Plus, the gene looks bad ass.

Do you think a second card in SLI would run really hot though? 

The side window on it being bigger.. And it not having those ugly flaps to open the side up.

I don't like small form factor cases, so my vote goes towards the 650D.  Have you checked out the 550D?

I'm a bit of a bitch for looks, so i wanna be able to see my components, if I was going for a stealth case that would be my number 1
