My rig is listed below. I have just purchased a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. The cooler is too big for my case which is a reused Compaq that I had sitting around. I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good looking/working budget case for this? ($50 or under) Thanks. Gotta be WIDE inside!

Hello bobarotti;

What video card are you using? We should make sure it fits in the case too.

I have a Nvidia Geforce 8400 GS. Sorry should have included that.

It turns out not to be a factor.
And all the recommendations so far will get you nice GPU upgrade options if you ever need them.

The V3 looks particularly attractive. Thanks to you all.
