Exclamation Help me choose, a cheap, Quality, and useful case (no higher than $75)

Suggestions please....

I am thinking of the Rosewill Conqueror... What do you guys think?

I had the thermaltake sorprano before and its quite nice too....

I have bought the 900 3 times in a row, so really havent experimented much with cases.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, need a computer build under 800, what do you suggest? I have not been building for quite a while now, so don't know what do get......
I got this so far.... https://secure.newegg.com/WishList/M...spx?ID=9289512
Mobo will be a ep35-ds3p
And well, case I dont know.....

CoolMaster always seems to have decent cases with air flow to match. Hope this helps. If anyone else can recommend better cases like the Antec 300 which is in your price range. Or any other worthwhile cases, feel free to do so.

I m not the brightest when it comes to cases, but I did order this a while back.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-WW Black/Silver Aluminum Bezel, SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

It arrives on Monday

Q6600 should be dropped for an e8500 because of crappy batches (which you were the first to get on this forum)

Drop the AF7 for the Core Contact Cooler..

Especially drop the Raidmax PSU, its on the Avoid list

Well which psu do you recommend? Really dont want to pay more than 70 bucks.... (with shipping)

Q6600, I am not planning to overclock it.....

The Core Contact Cooler is more expensive than the AF7!!
( As you can tell I am trying to go cheap with performance.)

AS for the case..... I will be buying it from buy.com as I always do on cases and psu
