The Corsair 300R and NZXT Phantom 410 are always excellent choices in the ~$80 range.

I rather like the looks and features of the Bitfenix Shinobi (w/ or w/out window) when on a budget.

These are some of the good cases for around that price :


1. Corsair 500R : 70 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-500rbk

2. Cooler Master Storm Enforcer : 80 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-case-sgc1000...

3. NZXT Phantom 410 : 85 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph410b1

4. Fractal Design Core 3000 : 60 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcaco...

5. NZXT Source 220 : 55 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caso22001

6. Bitfenix Merc Alpha : 50 Dollars : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/bitfenix-case-bfcmrc100kkx...

These are the best cases I could get around 80 dollars which does not compromise on perfromance. They are very good cases with good reputation in the builders community. Search for reviews on the Internet and select the one that you like the most. It is the one which should suit your needs at the end of the day. It is your build after all.

You can mark thread as solved anytime when you find the answer you were looking for by selecting that answer as the best answer. It would be appreciated by other guys who are looking for similar answers.

I went with the Storm Enforcer^ and am very pleased. I added the 200 fan for $15. Not sure if the others come with a top fan for price? I bought from Amazon for $89 and it went on sale 5 days later for $75 and they refunded me the difference(after asking).

Don't care about the top fans. Each Case I mentioned below has top fan mountings available so that should not be a problem. Also they are the best in that budget.

ive looked at a lot of corsairs case , for a good reason. they are a high quality company. i think a lot of there cases are over-priced though. the 500r is 125.00 on amazon, if it was 70 id have it already :)  the 300r is really nice. and i think they have it refurbished on corsair.com. sangeet i checked the prices and none were right, it was a lot over what you said. i think ive decided on the 300r thanks for all the responses :)

Yeah, these are the best prices at that time. The deals change quite quickly, so you never know when they go for different prices. But still the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer can be had for under 80 dollars at Microcenter.

Also the prices of NZXT Source 220 and the Bitfenix Merc Alpha are still the same, but both of them are not better than a 300R, i agree with that.

You can take a look at the Storm Enforcer, it is available for exactly 80 dollars on Microcenter, so it is a good deal.

Of Course, go for whatever you like. If you are happy with it, then go for it. The 300R is a very good case and I too have no problem recommending that case.

Happy PC Building.
