Budget is preferably under $50, but throw out suggestions with prices slightly higher as there are always sales, coupons, etc.

Build so far:
I54670k
Gigabyte 7950
MSI Z87-G41
3x 120mm Cooler Master blue LED
CM Hyper Evo 212.

Going Blue theme and I'd prefer a side window. Here are a few I've been looking at.

NZXT M59. Not the prettiest but great price and can accommodate my 3 fans.

Cooler Master 431. Right price. Room for fans. Would stick w/same brand for case/fans/cooler. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Apevia X-Jupiter. I REALLY like the look of this one. Price is good. But only has support for 3 fans...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Depending on wether you are looking for a full tower or midi I would recommend either the nzxt phantom series very sleek and stylish, easy to set up take a look at both the full and midi:

Both come with 3 fans however more is optional

Hope this helps

Those are great cases no doubt, but twice my budget :(

Fractal Designs Arc Midi R2 is on sale right now at Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ($70) I have this case and it's really great; easy to build in and runs quiet. Three preinstalled fans have their own separate controller and my CPU runs only a couple of degrees above ambient room temp at idle. You wouldn't have to buy fans with case. It does have a side window and filters on on the air intake areas to keep the interior of the case dust free. I do mostly photo editing and the only game I have played is Metro Last Light which I got for free with my NVIDIA GPU last spring.
