Hey guys, I am deciding on a new case for my build. I'm not really sure what to get and am hoping someone can give a few good ideas. The only thing I really want is for the case to be white and preferably with at least a small window to see inside. ATX full or Mid tower. My budget is around $100.

I found this case and love it:

It's a bit pricey though.

Really nice case . $ 134.00 after rebate and shipping . Only negatives I read were in regards to front and side fans and or there filters . Minor issues I think . Empty location on the roof for 120mm x 2 exhaust fans or a rad . Designed for the h100 likely . http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

400R,phantom 410 are great cases.if you want extreme cooling then go with 400r(10 fans)otherwise phantom.it's good looking,roomy enough and high air flow.

The Phantom does look really nice, might be worth the $130

EDIT- the 130.00 is the full tower version while the 99.99 from Amazon or the 110.00 from newegg is the mid tower version, sorry about that.

NZXT is cheap looking and plasticy IMHO the 500/400R cases are all around great and the Fractal Divine R3 is also great to and now only $100

Just watched an 18min unboxing of the new NZXT case forget the name but it was a full tower and I was pretty impressed and it wasn't at all like that Phantom plastic junk it was nice imo but thanx for the name calling real manly of you.PS a bunch of people eat McDonalds too.
