I like the cooler on the graphics card. But, the high back part of the cooler may be problematic when fit into a normal narrow case.

I can suggest the SilverStone SST-PS07B which is wider than normal, and is a M-ATX case which is not overly large.
It is $68 after rebate. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I use a similar TJ-08E which has a quiet 180mm intake fan and would do the job superbly.
But, it is $99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cases are very subjective, I am partial to the Carbide series from Corsair. The 300r is about $80 on newegg, if you want to stretch that far, and would fit your gpu cooler.

Basically, though, get as many recommendations as you can and then find the case that is most appealing to you.

Really depends on your style, too. I've used the NZXT Source 210, which is a nice case for the money if sleek is your style. I personally have the Challenger U3 because to the cooling. My last gaming build for a client, I used the Redbone. Any of those should fit your parts just fine.
