Default Computer Case

I am looking for a nice looking, but cheap ,with an emphasis on the word CHEAP, computer case. Mind you I don't want a piece of crap, just something $40 or less is optimum. I was going to mod my own case, but the one I have seems too small and doesn't have enough places for fans. I am now leaning toward one of these three cases, but I can't decide. So somebody help me make the decision, and/or suggest a case that would be good.

I greatly appreciate any help.

This is a good case in my opinion, plenty of room for fans, only $50:

And the same with a window ($55):

Is that logo frosted on the side, or is it a sticker?

coolmaster or lanboy are fine choices.

make sure the size is compatable with your mobo and that it has the right about of fans for your system( unless you wanna put in more fans )
