That and the Rosewill destroyer are my picks for low budget cases.

Also, the Antec "quality" is disigenuous because Antec's quality is only a little bit above average, just most people never use a high quality case so they don't know. The Destroyer and Midgard will have similar build quality, and similar material quality, though Antec is known to use thick steel.

Also disregard the $2k Tom's build, they tend to stick with certain brands and never stray from them, like Asus, Gigabyte, Corsair, Antec, and Silverstone.

there is a reason people stick to those brands. nothing against rosewill, my last case was one, but they don't actually make any of their products so you need to track down who actually made it. my rosewill was actually a re-branded Apex case and the cooling was sub par. The case looked great but the fans and sides where cheap.

I prefer to ignore brand names and go purely on reviews, and first hand experiences of others. Brands always let you down eventually, like how half of OCZ's current RAM doesn't work with a lot of hardware or how Corsair has become horribly overpriced for what truly is average RAM, and that is just in the RAM department.
