I'm looking for a good sound-resistant computer case and these are the only 3 I've been able to find:

1. NZXT Hush: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Pros: Cheap, Screweless Design, 2 fans.
- Cons: Small, Flimsy, 1 year warranty.

2. NZXT Whisper: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- Pros: Large, 4 fans, Screwless Design.
- Cons: Expensive and 1 year warranty.

3. Antec Sonata Elite: http://www.amazon.com/Antec-SONATA-ELITE-Sonata-Elite/d...
- Pros: Mid range price, solid steel design, larger than the Hush, 3 year warranty.
- Cons: 1 Fan.

Which one of these 3 would you say is the best "bang for my buck"?

Case design helps in setting up a quiet PC (good airflow, cable management, and sound isolation materials lining the interior to name a few) but there are definitely other factors. You need to pay attention to the noise-makers inside the case: GPU, CPU HSF, PSU, case fans, and the HDD are usually the biggest offenders. The R3 is a great case at a good price, but if you want to quiet down your computer you definitely need to pay attention to these other factors, too. What are the rest of your specs going to look like?
