Without a budget or indication of your inclination for style it's really hard so....

HAF 912, 922, 932 or HAF X

Antec 900 Two, Antec 1100, Antec 1200

Fractal Design Define R3(Or any of the other fractal design cases)

Cosmos II

Corsair 650D, 800D, 600T, 500R

Silverstone Raven

Lian-Li's are good

NZXT Phantoms are good

Stay away from:

Raidmax, Antec 900, Logisys, Apevia.

That's my 2 cents.

Yes, all the cases listed are good in my opinion

Oh I'm sorry when I said $675, I meant in total for the parts and the case. So my budget for the case would be $675 - 582 = $93. Sorry for the misunderstanding.. :(

phantom 410 comes in at $99 on newegg, maybe less somewhere else, i think its one of the best in that price range and it comes in a multitude of colors
