A great case is the Antec Superlanboy, for the price. 80 bucks for a very high quality case, if your willing to spend that much.

Thats the case with the door right?
I've heard Antec made really high quality cases.

I need something cheaper.

I've used this one for a few Athlon 64 builds for friends.

It's not super flashy but it has a 120mm rear fan and is pretty quiet and you can't go wrong with an Antec Power Supply.

It has been a very nice case to work with.

I was actually considering using this one for my own build next year.

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-023&depa=1

And then getting this power supply for it.

I'd go to Newegg first for cases.
