Default What are your favorite Sub $75 cases?

/Title

I'm going to try to build a $450 rig.
Maybe a $450 mATX rig (mini-tower, etc.)

I love the Rosewill Challenger and Destroyer. I'm reviewing my newly purchased Destroyer end of this month.

Destroyer is pretty cool, not too fond of the challenger though.

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

I am liking this case even though it does do much for wire management. It comes with 2x120 blue fans in front, a 120mm in the back, and a 140mm blue fan in the top.

The Cooler Master HAF 912 is a nice little case.

I don't know if I should go with the HAF 912, or the more expensive Lian Li PC-K58w (or the one with the black Interior- I forgot the name.

I like Lian Li cases, I have the PC-A70B

But the CM HAF 912 is a nice mid-size with a lot of features.The only thing I don't like is the lack of a window, but you can always add one later.

I have the CM HAF 922. Love it to death. 3 x 200mm fans can't be beat.

(Is a bit over budget tho...)
