Default Looking for a good ATX Mid-Tower Case

Hi I was wondering if anyone can give me a recommendation for a atx mid tower case that I could buy? I don't need a power supply for it, I just want it to be sturdy, have lots of room, and come with some nice features such as temperature readings.

Well i woudln't worry to much about temp readings you can jsut buy a drive bay temp reading or use a program. But look at the thermaltake cases and also antec P160W (one i am planning on getting soon) also jsut get one that you like and jsut read the reviews. also lia li are awsome cases!

a mid tower with "lots of room" doesnt exist , thats why their called "mid" your asking for too much, full tower is the way to go if you want alot of room

Good sturdy and cheap case that has lots of potential. Good for the budget minded. and it does have some decent room... Not a lot mind you, but some...

I'm looking hard at the Antec P180

Or the Antec TX1050B (to save some money)

does anyone know which of those antec cases has a front air filter on it to keep out dust? I thought I remember seeing one.

The P180 does, as does the P160, both Sonata models, the entire Performance TX line, and PlusView II.

P180 or P160 is the way to go, IMO.
