You need to be more specific when you say decent. Case preferences are all over the map and you need to say what you need in a case.

The Fractal Design Arc midi in my mind is a very good case at 59 pounds. It is the case I got but I had very specific needs. Other people look at that case and say it is ugly but I think it is great.

Look at that Fractal Design Core 3000. They make good cases and have great fans.

Out of all of those I still like the Fractal Design 3000. It is a steel case instead of plastic. It includes 2 140mm fans and 1 120mm fan. I can tell you the 140mm are very quiet. It has washable filters. I have only built 1 computer from a Fractal Design case but I am still very impressed and will probably use them for my next build.

I would rank the Antec 302 second. It is steel with 1 140mm fan and 1 120mm fan. I have built 5 computers with Antec cases and they are great.

After that it would be Corsair 300R, then the HAF 912. I just don't like the look of the 912.

Yes.

Their hard drive cages have both screw holes and they have rubber mounts to reduce vibration.

I think I'll get the 3000 then. Is cheaper than the 300r and haf. Sad I can't get the Usb 3 one :(  thanks for the help =)
