well if your looking for price, you can just go on newegg or some other online retailer and look through their cases sorted by price

however... if your in the $50 range, I'd check out the Aspire X-Plorer if you like flashy cases

If you can find this case:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

and this PSU:
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
or
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-520HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 520W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

The reason why I'm telling you to get another PSU, is that because the ones that come with a case, can die out in any day. That results in some component failure because of a dead and cheap PSU.

Not ALL psu's that come with cases are cheap and crappy. The one that came with my Ultra is just fine, 500w with 26A on the 12v rail.

Its not all about Amps either. Longevity and stability are even more important IMO.

On 1 +12V rail? You didn't state how many rails that PSU came with.

In my opinion, I think the Cooler Master Centurion 534, is better than the Centurion 5, because it has 2 x 120mm fans.

From the site, he's ordering from:
Mavi Bilgisayar - Teknolojide Doðru Adres

...and this power supply:

^ Agreed but it also looks worse than the CM 5 though.
