Default Which case do you guys think is better?

The antec 300 Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Or the cooler master 590 Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 590 RC-590-KKN1-GP Black SECC / ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Which one do you guys think is better and why? What is the best case for under $60?

meh both look rubbish imot of the two the coolermaster is better due to the more linear airflow.

The Antec 300 has excellent airflow, and I personally like it a lot more than the Cooler Master.

Coolmaster has EXCELLENT cooling. Just got a coolmaster a little while ago. For as long as I've had this case (about 2 weeks now) I have been in love with it.

The CM690 is like $75, and it can hold like 7 fans, and it looks awesome.

The 300 has extremely good cooling if you install 2x 120mm front intake fans. I am running the 300 with that step and it made a huge difference in my temps vs my old case, my gpu temps dropped 10c and my cpu idles 5c cooler.
