Default CASES and compatible PSU

so i see all these different dimensions of psu's on newegg and i get freaked out about whether or not it will be compatible with a case i'll get. So is there differences in compatibility between cases and PSU?
I want a cheap case (nothing over $100) and needs a couple fans and really doesnt need to look good, but cant look like it came back from a messed up future. PSU 450W- around 500W

can anyone help me find some cases that'll work? its the only part of my pc i need help with building

thaks yall

Antec has been good with me. Most people including myself would not recommend using a PSU that comes with the case if you're gaming.

This one is in your ballpark. I'm not sure what you're going to be using it for.

Search Newegg they have alot to choose from. JMHO.

i just want it to work for plenty of gaming.
still, does another psu you buy separately have to be especially compatible with the case? or will it work with any case?
