Upgrading Tower and Motherboards, need affordable options.

Hello, Im planning to upgrade my Case and my Motherboard, i need some recommendations (mostly for motherboard), my budget for the case is $60 max and for the motherboard $100 max, if you can recommend me some within that budget that would be great, i live in Spain (amazon availability).
Case preferences:
I prefer a windowed case, black or white, but if thats not possible it can be closed, LED or no LED, good airflow
Motherboard preferneces:
SLI compatible, ATX


Specs:
GTX 680 3-fans
B75m-A motherboard
8 GB RAM
i5 3470k 3.20ghz
Deepcool Gammax 400 Cpu Cooler
WD Blue 500GB SATA

  1. While I understand upgrading the case as a good move in eventually upgrading the entire PC, it makes no sense to upgrade the motherboard. You will still be stuck with a motherboard that can only support your current processor.

    It makes a lot more sense to upgrade the motherboard at the same time as you get a new processor.

    And as for cases, what do you want? Visual appeal. LED lightning, window case, quiet case... ?

    My current motherboard is Micro ATX and there are problems with space (GTX 680 3-fans blocks many sockets for example the HDD pins) and the processor bit shouldnt be a problem, most motherboards support more than one type of processor
