    Go to Newegg, in the advanced search option select cases within your budget. Narrow it down to cases with case windows and make your selection.

    ahhh... yeah out of my area. i ask for input on cases as well :) I currently use this Lian Li PC-K58, but it is $90 with shipping. good window, great construction, decent cable management.

    still, i'm sure someone else can direct you to the perfect case ;) good luck...

    In fact, I might buy one of those for my next build.

    Haha, I was going to come in and say the same thing. Too bad you're looking for one with the side window, because I love the 300 and with a little time to manage your cables, you'd be surprised how much you can actually manage them.

    You realize that's the same case with blue tint that's on newegg, right?

    You may also want to take a look at this case at Newegg

    acrylic cases suck dont buy one.

    in all honesty you can probably put your pc on a cardboard box for a little while and save enough money to buy a case thats actually good and not a POS like all the ones posted here.


    awesome case, good price for the everlasting quality you get, just be patient.

    edit: also maybe search around for a deal on that one or a free shipping coupon ;)

    it was either an acrylic case or a case from the NZXT line up.

    Yeah and all acrylic cases from sunbeam or the ones posted here are bad, and NZXT in general is a pretty sub-par case manufacturer.

    Issue with the ARK case is it's all 80mm mounts, it'd take some modding to use 120mms.

    The Raidmax comes with 5 120mm fans, it's a pretty good deal, and I bet you could mod a 6th 120mm on the case side were the window is funny shaped.

    The Rosewill case is a good one to get. It can have 4 120mms and the big 190mm on the side. Plus it looks good, and I'm willing to bet you could mod another 120mm into the 5.25 bays. Plus it's WC ready.
