It's come time for me to say good bye to my old case, as it no longer can fit my build or allow me to easily route the cables through my machine. I'm looking for the best case for right around $100, I would prefer full tower cases as I have a lot I'm squeezing in.

The Phantom is a very popular full tower case and it's owners seem to rave about it.
My only suggestion here, make sure you like the case, after all, you're the one who's going to be looking at it daily - the phantom has a unique look but I think the unique appeal is subject to wearing off... will it still have the appeal for your next build in a few years? Your call.
^ and you can't go wrong with it's big brother!
especially when looking at the price tag
I already own all those parts helfire... That is my current rig, I'm just looking for a new case because it's getting tight in there.
I really like the Phantom, and I found a Red 410 for $59.99 shipped, but is the mid tower enough room? I've been also looking at the Xigmatek Elysium, it looks nice and I'm pretty sure I could fit in there if I had too, but it's $60 over budget and I wanna know if anyone here has used one?
