So I'm looking for a Mid Tower ATX Case with all the good stuff and I want it to look good, my price range is 100$

I come up with these choices, please tell me which one would the be the best choice for the value:

NZXT Tempest 410 Elite: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

NZXT Phantom Mid Tower: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

NZXT Guardian 921 RB: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Black ATX Mid Tower Case:http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

Corsair Carbide Series 500R: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

Corsair Obsidian Series 650D: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6...

I would prefer to buy 100 one, the 650D is a little too expensive for my budget but I heard really good stuff. This is my first build so yea :D

Looking good is something we can give personal opinions on, but that doesn't mean you'll agree.

"All the good stuff" means what exactly?

How much cooling do you need?
Do you want front USB 3.0 ports? With a pass through cable or motherboard cable?

Based purely on my experience, the CM 690 II is fairly ugly in person. Looks better in pictures... this is the opposite of most cases that look better in person.

That Tempest 410 is a pretty good buy.

I honestly don't use usb that much except for card readers, mouse, flash drives etc, would i need one? I know the motherboard I'm getting has a USB 3.0 socket on the motherboard. And ye i saw a video preview of that CM it looks bad, I also really like the Tempest 410, i think i might as well go with it since its my first build. I also considered the Phantom for its looks but its really too expensive in canada compared to the US.
