Default Case Suggestions?

Well Im looking for a good solid case that looks good but is fairly cheap at the same time.
Would be nice if it had a tempature gauge as well but Im just dreaming there.
Here are my current specs and I do plan on overclocking so Ill need good airflow.


Thanks, -Execute.

Now I like most TT cases as long as u don't use thier PSU. :P

Heavy Cases are a biotch to move....!@

meh, TT cases seem to kinda "over do it" imo, this case seems simple and sleek

Wow the TT case looks better than expected.
Ill take it into consideration although $75 bucks is a little higher than I REALLY want to spend but if it comes down to it then Ill spend it anyway.

Oh and good lord 50 pounds fully loaded.
Damn thats a load. lol

Any other suggestions?

Here's the one I ordered, but it sounds like it might be a tad outta your price range: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

Search back a page or two, someone found a great deal on a mid-tower ATX at TigerDirect, with a modular power supply. The concensus was that the PSU was no good, but the price was good enough for the case alone, even if you eBayed or threw the PSU away!

I like this one. Nothing too fancy, solid and good airflow/cooling. Great price, looks good:

It comes with either a steel or glass side panel.
