Best sub-$100 case

Hey guys,
It's been a long time since I had been to Tom's Hardware. Needed help on buying a pretty snazzy case in a budget of $100. Have my eyes on the NZXT Guardian 921B. Any other good recommendations? I have the following brands available in my region - Antec, Cooler Master, Thermaltake, Lian Li, Lancool and Corsair. Thanks in advance for your help people.

  1. I would wait for the Antec 300 to be $50 first

    Some people like Cooler Master HAF so take a look at those as well...

    It depends on what you are doing with it. Air/water cooling? Multiple GPUs? How big does it need to be? CM makes a bunch of good cases under $100 (USD?), that NZXT is a beaut and I'm sure it would work great if that's what your heat is set on.
  3. These two from CoolerMaster :
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233 ,you buy for her a 200mm fan
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197 , that has 2x200mm fans and 1x120mm.

    Thanks man. Currently I have a pretty measly single GPU setup and a E7400 Core 2 Duo. However, I am planning to upgrade soon within the next 3-6 months so want a good case for the same. Tired of my crappy case now. Will be using air cooling and a single GPU setup preferably, might want to leave some room for SLIing though. CM cases are high-end and good stuff but something good at a lower range would be cooler. :)
