I need a good case for arounf $60. I am deciding between the antec 300 illusion ($55) and haf 912 ($60 before $10 rebate). The antec 300 comes with 4 fans and the haf comes with 2 but it has better cable management. I will be getting a gtx 560 Ti.

More about : good case

Both are good, HAF gets my vote - two fans should be fine and I prefer a tidy case (I also prefer the HAFs design to the plain old black case 300).

Get the Lian Li PC-K59

For the next 50 hours or so you can it for $60 using the promo EMCKEHK33

I wouldn't get the Illusion because of the rear facing bays and because it is not tool-less. I also wouldn't get the HAF 912 because it's not tool-less.

The Lian Li K59 and the A60 are many times superior to the HAF 912 and the 300 Illusion.

All the cases mentioned so far are very good imo.
The Illusion is an excellent value the only con is it has no cable management.
My favourite mid level case is the Shinobi = nice clean looks and excellent cable management.

I was about to get the haf 912 for $40 and a 200mm fan but the bitfenix looks good too. Is it worth the extra $20 and are those websites safe to order from.

Hard to beat the 912 which is an excellent value = free shipping
You can always add a windowed side panel if you want.

Personally i like the Shinobi better but that will be determined by how much it costs to ship.
Yes the websites i listed are all well known sites and official resellers of BitFenix products.
On the Bitfenix site (click where to buy) and find out who has the best shipping rate.
You can also order directly from BitFenix.
I live in Canada and shipping is under $15 for it where i shop.Not too bad Vancouver -->Toronto
