I was wondering what case I should get that has the following features:
-the ability to fit larger GPUs (also crossfire support of say a 7850)
-usb 3.0 ports
-good cooling
My budget is a hundred dollars and I am willing to go to a max of 120.

No need to spend all that:

These were designed for good cooling and large cards.

I know those are great cases. But the problem is that they don't support usb 3.0, only 2.0. For my first build I want a case that isn't using older technology. Hopefully cm updates their haf series to support usb 3.0. But for now, they don't so I need case suggestions.

They do in the rear. And if you're looking for front USB's:

that'll cost you an extra $20.00 :)

You know what I'll just start my build later on when manufactures update their cases. Because I don't want to exceed my budget. But thanks for the info.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
The mfg's probably won't update their cases until more devices that utilize 3.0 are available though.

thanks i really appreciate as I'm only a first time builder. But considering a large portion of the new Z77 mobos feature usb 3, I think it will be before the year ends
