I think the video card I'm ordering is going to sell out quickly. Need some quick info on cases. (Price went up on the one I was planning on.) Looking for the cheapest thing that will be very quiet and have at least decent airflow. Don't care for windows and flashing LEDs.

I don't care for the antec 300, looking at these two at the moment

Any difference between that centurion and the one I listed?

I just realized shipping doesn't combine, so I might end up grabbing the case from somewhere other than newegg. Since it's a budget thing and cases are big I think something with free shipping is probably necessary if it's from new egg. The only one I saw was this one:

Any thoughts? Other ideas?

I would stay away from rosewill myself. The cooler master 690 has very good cooling for being a budget case, but that's with all the fan slots filled I believe.

@justjohn the cases are internally similar, however the front is different (no LED's for one) It is all mesh, instead of solid plastic/metal. Personnaly I'd go with the Sunbeam tho.

Looks like frys has the antec p180 for $70. Too good to pass up. Going for it.
