if the handle is what you like, try the storm scout
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

matx may be harder to fit stuff into...

certainly the motherboard which is too big.

sure, an ssd would be fine and fits the budget. i was trying to keep it simple.

the case is one that i currently use. not the best if you want ultra neat wire management, but i think its a fine case for the money.

i dont really recommend getting warranties. on anything. i mean, if you were sure that something was going to break or your baby brother was going to smush a pb and j sandwich into it maybe. but thats probably not covered. everything is generally covered for a year anyways. save the money that you would spend on the extended warranty and make that money the insurance policy for something that breaks. which in my experience rarely happens. 9 times out of 10 if something breaks, it will arrive that way.
