Recommend me a good mid tower case < £100? If possible...

For an ATX mobo with Gigabyte GTX 670 (the long one, 27.5cm). One SSD, one optical drive.

Want/prefer
- USB 3.0 & USB 2.0 ports on the front
- thumbscrews as much as possible
- rubber feet (not plastic)
- removable drive bays to allow more room for longer GPU/better airflow
- a handle/grooves to make it easy to carry! I'm kinda clumsy
- the smaller the better
- sturdy

Won't ever do water cooling, overclocking, or SLI.

I was *very* close to getting the Fractal Design Define R4 (without window) but then I saw there were no handles to carry it by. Other than that it seems like my dream case. The sound proofing and attached thumbscrews on the side panel are awesome too. And £70...

CM Storm Enforcer was also a consideration...but its plastic feet & lack of thumbscrews put me off...also no handle to carry. And also £70...

Thanks!

Cooler Master Scout 2 looks rather sexy. Thank you both

Would you know if this PSU would fit in there? How does one tell? I mean I know the general dimensions of both but that isn't enough to tell...

For psu compatibility, look for "ATX12V". This is a pretty standard size, and will fit in most cases, including the CM Master Scout 2.

To answer your question, the listed psu will fit the case.

Hold on...just watched a video review of the Scout 2 and at around 11.10, you see that the case is missing a dust filter at the bottom?!

Isn't this a problem? Can anyone who owns the case verify that the dust filter is missing?

It seems that there is a difference between the "COOLER MASTER CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced" and "COOLER MASTER CM Storm Scout 2". The video posted seems to review the non-advanced version.
The advanced version comes with the extra dust filter you are talking about.
