Hello. Recently I've been trying to decide on a nice relatively cheap case for the build that I want. Honestly I really could care less about looks as i'm more of a functionality person. Looking for something preferably around $20-40 (less is always better) that has decent air flow and isn't ridiculously huge. This is roughly the build I have so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/mhHC4D (granted everything is subject to change). Any suggestions?

The Antec One is awesome for small builds.
But for less than $40, quality starts dropping off dramatically.
Cooler Master N and NZXT Source are good too, and I think both around $40.

Thanks for the help everyone. I found a decent looking NZXT case without the window panel for $35 that seems like it will do the job
