Default New Cosmetics?

How much should you be looking to spend on a new case? I know it would depend on the Money you have available I guess but what should you be looking out for when buying a new case. I mean price, materials, form factor, customization I guess. Is their a given price range for any of these things.

I would think the better and upper scale cases have wiring management, fan filters, added extra places for radiators/more fans, tooless assembly and removable hard drive cages, things you won't get with a sub-$50. case

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you as well as you deserve

Agree with Joe here, Last two cases I purchased cost about $60 either on sale or close out, I'm not much caring if it's discontinued if I like the case and has what I want. I Really like my NZXT Tempest 410 and got it as they did continued it, Just mad I can't get another one for another system I'm putting together but I'm sure I'll find one in the same price range I want.
New system
NZXT Tempest 410 - I5-4670K - Asus Z87-Plus - SeaSonic SS-750KM3 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular PS
