Default Looking for a decent case

I've been looking around and have gone through like 5 different cases over the last month..I just can't find a good one.

I'm mostly in it for looks though (Yea, that's useless ...but i'm picky lol)

Needs to be a max of $85, that's including shipping.
clear side panel
and if any of the fans have LEDs I want them green
mid or full tower-doesn't matter

any recommendations or websites that sell cases would be great..i've looked all over newegg and can't find anything i really want

Check out Xoxide.com - Custom ATX Computer Cases, PC Mods, Computer Case mods, and Modded PC Cases

They have just about every type of case going.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! has a decent selection as well

as does

ZipZoomFly

Take a look at the Gigabyte Aurora 570's, or any of the Silverstone, Lian-Li cases.

yeah, their NexXxos radiators are priced quite low, so I think that says something about the quality compared to other brands.

I'm glad I got a Thermochill radiator (PA120.3) for my PC
