Could you put both a gaming rig and a gaming pc in the 900d or 1000d case

Ok so I’m thinking about building a server for my home/business and I also want to build a gaming rig so I thought to myself why not put both in one case? Is this phesable or would it just more practical to do them as separate systems

Just build 1 powerful game rig that can be a server too...

Chances are if you need fully separate systems, then you really should use separate cases too.

Are you saying you want two mobos in one case? Or that you want a do-it-all computer?

It is possible. But, it's less practical. It would likely be better to have two separate cases, one of which with ample 3.5" bays for hard drive space.

Sure, a number of cases can accommodate two separate builds. The 1000D for example has a spot for both a normal system with up to a EATX board, and a separate section for a ITX build with single GPU which is fine for most gaming builds.

Though I would look at possibly a small out the way system for a server and then normal case for your daily rig or see if a single rig can function as both
