What's your budget? Also, what style do you want to go for? What cooler do you want to stick in it?

All in all, a good medium starters gaming case have always and will alwats be the Cooler Master CM690 II. I bought the Antec DF-30 a few months back, but I wouldn't recommend it. The case isn't too quiet and it's just too much plastic for my liking (although it does make for a lighter case than most others out there, which is nice as I LAN almost every weekend). Same class cases include Thermaltake Armor A90, Cooler Master 690 II Advanced, Cooler Master Storm Scout, Cooler Master HAF 912 and my personal favourite (I can kick myself for not getting it) the Antec 900 Two.

Yeah any of the HAF cases are nice and my own personal choice, the CM Scout :) 

Really depends on budget since there are so many choices and a wide range of prices. Keep in mind cooling aswell. Some cases provide much better cooling features than others. So if your going for a really intensive overclocked build, you'll want good case cooling.

We need to know the exact budget. Its not the size which makes a case cheap or expensive. I can link many mid tower cases costing well above 150$. And below that mark you can find few full tower cases as well. My personal favorite sub 100$ cases are from Lancool but there are other manufacturers as well.

For under $100 best bang for buck is either a CM 690 II, Lancool PC-k62 or the HAF 922

So i was going to buy the Cooler Master CM690 II but then i saw the Sunbeam Transformer Black Steel ATX Full Tower and its only $70,so im thinking wow a full tower for only $70 thats a good deal,now is this case only $70 b/c it sucks or what?

I hope you have not bought it yet. Your selected case has very bad cooling setup (it even looks bad IMHO). If you need to keep prices down then get one of these -

1. Antec 300 illusion

2. Coolermaster HAF 912

3. Lancool PC K58
