    Best bang for the buck rackmount case?

    Whats the best bang for the buck 2U rackmount case? Also, will this Asus Motherboard fit it it? Any other pointers (ie. how a pci raid card would fit in a 2u case) as I have never built a 2u server before just pedestal servers.

    How many drive bays do you need? Hot swappable or no?

    I dont think we would need anymore than 350w. We need 4 drive bays. Hot swappable is definitely something we want but if its considerably more for cases with that then, no. I am not sure but we wouldn't really want to spend more then $150 per a case. Hopefully thats a realistic budget.

    Your going to be very hard pressed to find that for $150.

    This $140 case doesn't fit your needs, is open box, has no reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16811123107R

    This $250 case has 4 x 2.5" hot swap drives, 350W PSU, and fits your ATX mobo:
