Help choosing a case

Hi, I've decided upon all the components I need for a new build, except the case. I've looked up a number of reviews, and I'm still not sure. I'd rather not spend too much - I don't think I'd get much value out of a very high-end case. I've been considering the Antec 100, which, from reviews, seems to be quite good, and is a good price. Only, it doesn't seem to have USB 3.0 ports, something I can live without, but it's a shame not to have them nonetheless. Are there any others that you would suggest to fit the components I've chosen. Thanks.

And here's the list:
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4, $135
CPU: Intel i5-3570, $205
Video Card: 3GB Radeon 7950, $325
Memory: G Skill Ares 1600 8GB, $44
Storage: SATA3 2TB WD Green, $99
SSD: Samsung 830 Series 128GB, $94
Power: Antec HCG-520, $83
Case: Antec 100 Case, $62
Monitor: 24” 5ms Samsung S24B300H, $165
Drive: LG Blu-Ray Combo, $55
OS: Windows 8, $100

Again, thanks.

About $100.

Also, Uther39, the Antec One does look good, but, unfortuantly, it's one of the few popular cases that my local shop doesn't supply. And yeah, I have no plans to pirate Windows.

First of all ignore the guy who says get a Pirate copy of Windows 8 its illegal.

As for a case you would be much better off with the Antec One as it has USB 3 and is much better than the 100...
