Antec GX500 Mid Tower Case Review

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are going to take a look at one of Antec’s value cases, the GX500. This is targeted at those users who are looking for a capable chassis on a tight budget. Antec has designed this case from the ground up for gamers, so we are interested to see the new design.

Antec are a very well-known brand in enthusiast circles and have been producing a vast range of chassis for many years. They are highly regarded for producing decent quality cases at competitive price points.

The GX500 fits in somewhere near the bottom of Antec’s range, under models like the One and 300, which are slightly more expensive.

We have been very impressed with their more expensive cases we have looked at in the past it will be interesting to see if any of the high-end features we’ve seen before will be transferred to this model.

The inclusion of a GTX 1060 might make the Surface Book 2 a capable laptop for games, but it's power supply seems to hamper that.

  • Hi there, and thanks for the review, I found it really informative.

    Even though this is a so-called budget case, would I be able to switch the top 2x120mm fans with a 240mm rad from, say, the Antec H20 Kuhler 1250?

    Look forward to hearing from you soon, and sorry for the inconvenience!
