I'm looking for a relatively cheap case ($50-$65), and that has good cable management, preferably black on the inside. Anybody got any ideas? :)

HAF 912 is a good overall case, but for superior cable management, get Corsair. Might be a little over your budget. I've also heard good things about the Gamma. Don't know about cable management, though.

Corsair is known for having overall great ease of building and quality. But the HAF is REALLY popular right now, so it must be pretty nice. In case I didn't make that clear, I was doing this:

1. Corsair
2. HAF
3. Gamma

But if he/she doesn't want to fork over quite a bit of $$ for the Corsair, then the HAF obviously is first place. In fact, it's first place anyway because of the price.

Corsair 300R (on sale right now at newegg):
5/5 eggs, with 20 reviews:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Further, the CPU cooler cutout on the motherboard tray is one of the largest we’ve seen, allowing us to fit our cooler backplate with plenty room to spare...The motherboard tray is raised up quite a bit from the side panel, thus allowing generous room for cabling, and it also has four cutouts (alas, no rubber grommets) for routing cables around the edge of the motherboard"

Just search for any review on any Corsair chassis, and they'll say that the interior is really nice. Personally, I'd get the 400r, but that's out of price range.

HAF 912 is probably what you should go for at the moment.

Yeah, he's right. I think what we've decided on here is the HAF 912, xNIN3. So... get the HAF 912. It's really airy, though, so it won't be the quietest. But its cooling is really nice, and tomshardware rated it as the best chassis I think.

Turning the case over onto its side reveals the massive fan port on top. Cooler Master has designed this opening very well, as they have given the user a variety of cooling expansion options here. You can either screw in two 120mm fans, a single 140mm fan, or if you have one on hand, one of the massive 200mm fans. This is a very nice feature on a case of this size because you can have nigh silent operation while maintaining an impressive volume of air-flow.

I'm speaking from a Fractal R3 perspective, so silence is relative. Honestly, I'd rather they included the decibels emitted. If it's not noisy... get it. Really. For an average user, I guess it would be fine.
