I have been looking at cases and was wondering what is a good mid ATX case for around $100

I was looking at the rosewill blackhawk, but it is sold out at the moment. I am looking for alternative cases and if it is a good case

Eh rosewill.........Go for something by cooler master or antec or even corsair. A good option is the haf 922 or haf 932.

All the Blackhawk is a CM690II copy imo.
If you can wait the new USB 3.0 version of the CM690II will be out very soon.
CM offers alot of part replacements and upgrades for that model.
I know because i have one.
CM build quality is higher imo.

(this is a post that I wrote for another very similar thread)

The coolermaster haf 922 is probably one the best mid-range cases you can get for under $100.

Some of it's features include:
five 5.25" external drive bays
transparent side panel window
two enormous 200mm fans (one in the front and one on the top) as well as a 120mm rear fan
tool-free installation of drives
Ton's of room to fit the largest video cards (and liquid cooling)

With two usb 2.0 ports, audio, an e-sata (yes there is one). This is definetly good enough as USB 3.0 still isn't mainstream. Also if you invest in a decent motherboard you can have the usb 3.0 ports that you are looking for. My advice is don't let the front I/O ports be your deciding factor. This case is very spacious, well built, and even looks pretty good. This case is currently going for $90 on newegg and that price drops 10 bucks with a rebate.
