So I wanna build my first computer pretty soon. I've set aside 130 dollars for the case, but I'm having an incredibly hard time deciding on one. At first, I wanted to go with the Silverstone RV03, but the nonstandard design has warranted complaints from even experienced computer builders. Not sure I wanna start with something like that for my first time building. So any other suggestions in the 130 range? Looking for something stylish and preferably with a side window.

STYLISH and SIDE WINDOW, save a little more and get either of these:

I'm a huge fan of NZXT's cases!

If you want a mid tower....the Phantom 410 is nice and has lots a great features. (There's also a Full Tower version of it).

If you need a full tower, based on my experience, I'd highly recommend the Switch 810...it's particularly a great case for water cooling.

If you can invest a bit more money, the NZXT Switch 810 is one sexy beast :lol: 

If you don't mind for a side window, I personally find the Corsair Obsidian 550D to be one hell of a sexy/elegant case.

Fractal Design does make nice cases, but the fan grills on them just KILL the elegant factor for me. I know I'm being anal, but I personally love how I could just cover up the fan grills that I'm not using so they're not visible.

This is probably me being a Corsair Fanboy, but those cases just aren't attractive to me :lol:

Indeed, the Zalman z11 Plus is one of the best cases for under $100... I recently ordered this product for my next build.
