Gamma Classic case by NZXT

Gamma Classic comes in a pretty much standard packaging box.  On both sides of the box we found a few NZXT logos and some information on the actual case.  We will get in to the details on what is inside of the case in a little bit, but its worth of mentioning that this case is a steal case and well, it is on a heavy side.  This case is about 12 pounds without power supply.  So expect your whole PC to be about 20+ pounds.

Gamma Classic comes in tightly secured foam.  This foam packaging keeps the case in one place while shipping and plastic bag protects the actual case from accidental scratches during shipping.  You might find this kind of packaging on almost every PC case.
