The ideal case has to be under $60, have some decent cable management, and of decent quality. I don't mind not having bright glowly LED lights or anything. So if anyone could give me some advice on these two cases (or perhaps a entirely different case).
The build will not be doing any OCing, Crossfire, or any other "advanced" stuff. It is just a $600 build in all.
As usual, any help is appreciated.
If your dead set on one of the 2 you suggested, I would go for the NZXT. I had a Phantom from them, and it prove to be a very sturdy case as you would expect from a reputable case manufacturer. I haven't heard much about Rosewill, so imho it isn't worth the risk.
That's my build, the case is a price placeholder there. Also, after measuring the complete area I have to put the computer(Which I should have done earlier, I admit) my dimensions are 15.5" x 9' x 20" (In length x width x height). So I may have to go with the shortest(in length) of the three. I wished there was somewhere else I could place it, but it's either this or on carpet unfortunately.
EDIT: Given that most cases have stands that are further towards the middle, the length problem shouldn't be too big of a concern if the case has stands that are shorter than the length of the case. (Just tested it with an old PC case)

I was in a similar position a few years back after moving house. I ended up using a piece of MDF that i got from my local hardware store to stand the case on on the floor. Just an idea, as I would hate to see you regretting your choice of case later.
That build is similar to one i just did for a friend, the AMD processor is a little more powerful than the Intel one, and the board is a full ATX board, so there will be more room for upgrades later. The HDD is different as well, just personal preference really, I have a few of the barracuda's and the are bulletproof. If you haven't already started purchasing then it might be worth a look in this direction.
