Total is $602.74 without case, therefore I want a case that's under 100$ to stay under my 700$ budget

In the case I would like no LEDs with the exception of colours that match with blue (blue, yellow, white etc.) to go with my blue colour scheme, I would like a side window or at least mesh that I can see into the case with decently

Question: Which case should I go for?

I'm going to hold off a bit for the graphics card as I'm not going to jump into gaming straight away with this.

Can't wait!!
If there's anything I should be worried about then just tell me and I'll try my best to change it.
