Default Recommend Me an Inexpensive Tool-less Computer Case

Can somebody recommend me an inexpensive tool-less tower? It's gonna be for my new main, a core2duo w/ an intel board.
It doesn't have to come with a psu or have a side windows or anything like that, those aren't requirements. Thanks in advance

Nice! The combo deal with the psu is perfect since I need a 400w for my spare pc now. Nice rebates too! I'm gonna place my order on Monday, thanks so much for your help.

I used a silver version of this for my old box i built two eyars ago.i never had a problem with it. Stock fans blow nicely, the stock PSU is crap though.

See my specs below, cooling has ben sufficient to run the mobo at no more than 30, and cpu at no more than 45 while OCed like thatr for 2 straight years(the thing has NEVER been turned off, only rebooted)
