straight aircooling. get a good CPU cooler, ram sinks, VGA cooler.

Sub 200$ cases- just get a nice full tower that is functional.

I know you want an AMD motherboard so get this one- - GIGABYTE GA-MA790FX-DS5 AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

invest in a nice PSU also.

galaxy makes good PSUs.
