Default Best Overall Case

What would you guys recommend for the best case for things like airflow, looks, size, etc for $100 or under?

ugh I dont really like the way that antec looks, its gotta have a window of some sort. The reason I need a bigger case is because my Drives for the 5.25 bay interfere with the Mobo

You'll need a Full Tower if you want 5.25s to not interfer with the mobos. Personally, i like the Chieftec Towers and own one too, but whatever is up to you.
