    Under $100...not going to happen, you can't expect anything more than crap for under $100.

    Edit: Unless some kind soul gives you one hell of a deal.

    Wait for what sneekypeet has in store. If is not what you are looking for.....you should be able to piece one together for about $300ish.

    Easy, what do you need? I know you have a price limit of $100, but I was wondering what exactly are you looking for?

    Oh, if this is just about a nice decent HTPC case. I vote for Buck Nasty's first pick.
