Default Which case is the best?

I'm going to build my gaming pc soon and I need some help picking out the case. I was going to go with the Cooler Master NV 690, but I came across the Raidmax Smilodon, which I really seem to like. Also the XION Onyx looks good. The NZXT LEXA I was looking at too. Just give me your opinions on which one is the best. Also maybe the nzxt tempest.

out of those 4 i'd pick the 690. Looks neat, and not as chincy as the others.

i'm assuming you want to stay in the sub 100$ price range, but if it doesnt matter take a look at the cooler master haf 932
/end propaganda

The Antec 300 is a great case and even with two additional front intake fans its well under $100.

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

+ 2x Newegg.com - Rosewill RFA-120-BL 120mm 4 Blue LEDs LED Case Fan - Case Fans

I have the 300 with those fans and I would get it again without hesitation.
