Best case for $50-75

What's the best case for around this price point?

My Mobo is ASRock Z77 Extreme 4

I don't really care what it looks like, cable management, airflow, noise, build quality and drive bays are more important in that order.

I'd rather spend less but if one at the top or slightly above that range is a lot better overall I'd consider it.

What's the difference between the 200R and 300R other than a slight difference in dimensions? The 200R is $20 cheaper.

is it? what i see now, 200r is priced the same as 300r

The 300R is a better case, and is slightly larger, giving more room inside for both working in it (upgrades) aqnd for cooling. Also, though both have two fans, the front one on the 300R is 140mm, giving better airflow into the case and a positive pressure inside the case, which is better. Of the two, get the 300R.

read both reviews of them

Yeh right sorry I was looking at the windowed version of the 300R. It's still $10 more but I suppose that isn't much. Thanks!

What about the phantom. It looks better in general but it lacks a dust filter and the drive bays don't look as good. But the carbide gets reviews saying it's overpriced?

phantom 410 is usually priced over $80
and it sells its futuristic look, not functionality you were looking for :)

Yeh but it has $20 rebate on newegg at the moment making it the same price as the 300R. Ignoring looks how do they compare? Yes it does look nice ;)

Fractal Design Core 3000 is also a good choice.
