BitFenix released an updated version of their Nova mid tower case today called the Nova TG. They’ve given it a visual upgrade, adding a tempered glass side panel and an accent stripe down the front panel’s side-mesh intakes. It’s available in black with red accents (as seen here) or white with black accents.
To check out the case, we decided to build a Ryzen 3 1300X / GTX 1050 Ti based $650 (USD) gaming PC. Read below for the complete part list and watch the build video to see how it all came together.
