Arrow case sudgestions?

Can someone help me find a cool case? I'm a gamer. I would like it to glow and have a clear side. I dont need a PSU either. The more fans/bigger fans the better. my budget is like 80$ with shipping. Just would like some sudgestions, links and stuff. thanks guys

I would recommend these two cases:

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

I know they aren't $80 right now but you can usually find deals

The Antec nine hundred is the most common, and most over rated case.

NZXT Apollo, Coolermaster 690, and Centurion 534 (if you're a cheapskate) are my recommendations
