Antec was kind enough to ship me their GX505 Window SC mid-tower case to review. The Antec GX505 is part of the GX series of cases designed for gamers on a budget. The GX505 is a slight revision of the GX500 case. The main difference is the all new front and top panels, and a built-in fan controller switch.
There are also two variants to the GX505 design. There is the GX505 Window, and the GX505 Window SC, which is the version I’ll be reviewing. The difference is the GX505 Window has a side mount 120mm fan option on the window, and the Window SC version just has a window.
In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I’ll be going over all the features of the GX505 Window SC and see if it really is up to the job of being a budget gaming PC case.
