Hello all! :D 

I am building a new rig in the near future, but I am stuck as I cannot decide which case would allow all of my components to fit, allow room for upgrades, and allow nice air-flow (OC purposes). Could you help me decide which case would best suit my need within my budget of £50.

I live in England.

I forgot to add I want good cooling (airflow), I shall also buy optional fans if available. The cooling is more important to me than looks.

Try the Rosewill Challenger. Its a great cost efficient mid tower case that has enough room for the Hyper 212 and the DH-14.

Look at the antecs and xigmateks in that price range they are pretty decent

Also get a CM 212 CPU cooler and think twice about pointless speed RAM

I shall just hope that it will be able to keep all of my components cool!
