  1. 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.
  2. well budget is $675, i'm not sure about the different styles.

    Can any of the cases work?
  3. Yes, all the cases listed are good in my opinion
  4. 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.. :(
  5. 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
