Case Help Needed

Last response: in Components

Hey guys,

I am looking for some help finding a case for my first build. I would like to spend as little as possible on the case and have been looking at the following:

Rosewill Redbone,

Rosewill Blackhawk,

Corsair 400r,

I really like the Blackhawk and Corsair for the rubber grommets around the cable management ports as well as the painted interior. I am not sure if I want to spend the $75, before rebate or just get something cheaper for my first build. I do not need a bunch of 5.25" bays, in fact 3 would be ideal (usually only have 1 or 2) and I would prefer more 3.5" bays than 5.25" in any case. FYI just air cooled right now, probably wouldn't ever do liquid.

I want your opinion on;

How important is the rubber grommet system to you?

Which of the 3 listed would you choose for a 1st build?

Are there any other cases in the $50-75 range you would consider?

Build specs.
Asrock z77 Ex4
Intel i5-3570k
G.skill 1600mhz (2x4GB)
Antec HCG 750w
Radeon 7850

All I am hearing is crickets... can someone please give me some feed back on whether or not they like the rubber grommets around their CM ports, and some other possible case choices... I have looked at what seems like hundreds, but just can really decide what is important at this point.
