Coolermaster HAF 932. Its 139.99.

Although you can get the HAF X for 190 if you're willing to pay for it:

Just so you know, the HAF stands for High Air Flow, which is always needed in a good, solid gaming build.

I have the HAF932, I can recommend it. I would say the HAF X probably isn't worth it; there's plenty of room in the 932 as it is. More space inside the case means a lower air pressure, meaning less useful airflow.

You just need more fans to have the same effect in a greater space than you'd need if it was a smaller space...

interesting link night fox. excellent example to decide on a good case. but i would get something not too expensive... save the money if you can. the haf932 should be just fine.
