Hey guys, I'm 16 and am starting to build a gaming computer from scratch. One of the first things I wanted to know was which Computer Case should I get? I have the gist of what kind of case you need for a computer (Good airflow, Spacious, good fans, etc.) but I'm still unsure of what case to get. My budget for a case is around $50 so here are some cases that I really like...

Also, another quick question... are most ATX (mid) Cases compatible with most ATX motherboards? Because I don't want to get a case and then have a motherboard not fit it.

Any case is fine so long as it has the features you like. I personally would go for the Cooler Master HAF 912, it's considered a HIGH end case for it's price, and it can fit a 240mm radiator for water cooling. Also, all mid tower ATX cases can fit all ATX motherboards, but not all can fit full size VGA cards without modding/removing a drive bay.

Thanks man, now it's it all cleared up in my head. Oh, and also, um... I actually was considering that case that you recommended too. I just put up the other ones because I thought they looked a little cooler. But coolness doesn't buy wisdom. :)

You are the one who needs to look at it, so don't buy something you don't like. Awhile back I was in the market for a case until I found out I needed to move and put it on hold. The Rosewill R5 had every feature I wanted, but in my eye's it's Fugly. I mean bad. People I showed it to said it looked fine to them, but all that plastic would drive me nuts. (I hear the GX700 from Antec is coming, can't wait to see that!) Make sure you buy something that fits you, not just something that others like.
