I am looking for a nice gaming case that has a nice side panel, grommets for cable management and ability for upgrading. Any ideas?

as much as i like the corsair 400r( i have one) it's not under $100. its $110 and then you wait for a rebate check to come.

Apart from the acrylic window I do actually quite approve there :) 
I just don't like the fan cutouts people provide in acrylic for some reason

simple math lesson

in order to check out the corsair 400r on newegg you must pay $99 plus $10 shipping becasue shipping is not free on the case. your credit or debit card will be charge $110. newegg will not take an IOU for $10 because of the MIR. you then mail in the MIR and hope everything goes well and wait 6-8 weeks for a check to come.

hopefully this lesson in economics 101 will serve you well in your candy land life

Well as im UK based, ive never actually bought anything from new egg, and can honestly say im glad that i do live in the UK, and that we have laws protecting us from such Scurrilous activity's, when you buy in the UK, the advertised price is the price you pay.

But on a side note, " YOU SMART ASS GIT!"

How much does the case cost?
Thats right $99.
The fact that shipping is another $10 has nothing to do with the cost of the case, as the 2 costs represent 2 different services.
The poster asked for a case for under $100, not a case+shipping under $100.

hopefully this lesson in not trying to be a smart ass will serve you well in your up your own ass life, and you can climb down from your very high ego tree.

so what you are telling me, there is a large community of consumers who purchase items from online companies and then drive several states to go and pick up said item? in some cases the gas alone (assuming no stops for food or hotel) would triple the cost of the case. lets not get into days lost to work. shipping is part of the cost of any item you purchase online that is within a short distance!

the OP asked for a case under $100. you went over. end of story.

Yes your right, and i do apologise for my harsh words, but at the same time i do not take kindly to being told that i apparently live in a candy land life, especially when im 41 years of age, married with 2 children who i go out every day to work to support and feed.

The fact that its splitting hairs over a shipping cost and at the same time trying to make out its some kind of economics guru does annoy me.

But again im man enough to cough up an apology for my harsh words.

Anyway i repeat, the 400r in my own opinion offers extremely good value for money, regardless of shipping costs,..

Antec 1100 has my vote.

Antec Eleven Hundred Performance Gaming Case
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=65171&vpn=ELEVEN%20HUN...

Has everything you're looking for. Just under $100 if you buy from NCIX. They also ship it free of charge. It has rubber grommets for cable management as well as a ton of space behind the mobo tray. The only con I can think of is it only comes with two exhaust fans. There are up to 9 mounting points for fans. 2 of these places are already occupied. That leaves 7 extra mounts with 5 of them being optional. You'll need another 2-4 120mm case fans for optimal airflow.
