Small compatible case

I'm not sure whether this belongs in this thread or the home-built thread.

I'm trying to find a small to mid sized case for a computer I'm building solely for linux development. I somewhat followed the september 400$ gaming rig guide.

cpu: AMD Athlon II X3 440
mobo: Asus M4N68T-M V2
memory: Crucial CT2KIT25664BA1339 4GB 2GBx2
hdd: western digital caviar blue 1tb
optical: Samsung Black 22x DVD Burner
psu: Antec Basiq 430 BP430 ATX 12V 430W

I usually use pricewatch to find parts but I haven't really found what I'm looking for (As small as possible, with decent ventilation). Any suggestions?

The smallest cases are more expensive. It looks from your parts that you desire inexpensive rather than smallest possible size, so let's start there.

For $35, 5 eggs APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX

For $40, also 5 eggs Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan
