Best $50 case?

I'm building my friend a gaming build, and don't know which case to get him. I want the case to be $50, since it's not too expensive, but still good quality. Right now I am mainly debating against the Antec One, the Rosewill CHALLENGER, and the Cooler Master HAF 912. So, which one should I choose? Here is the build I was going to get him, if that helps-

  3. Get two sticks of 4gb RAM as you will get much better performance from 2 because RAM works better in pairs. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2I3ta

    I wasn't asking about RAM. I don't care about that, I care about which case to get

    Check the case I told you, that is good. You will have good air circulation if you go with HAF 912, it comes with 2 fans by default both 120mm still you can add 4 x 120mm fans or 2 x 120mm + 1 x 200 mm. Its worth to spend $59.99 on this case!! Trust me !!

    In partpicker you can get the same case for $49.99

    You need to chill out, don't come on here and ask for peoples help and be so disrespectful. I was just pointing out something that could be improved with your build, if you choose whether to take that advise or not is up to you.
