Default Know of a good case?

So I have all the parts for a good computer but nothing to put them in; i need a case. I'm looking for a mid tower with ATX compatibility with a price range of under $100. It needs to be spacious to fit a Radeon HD 5830.

I looked around on Newegg and found this combo package for $140.

Rosewill Smart One ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Rosewill Xtreme Series RX850-S-B 850W Continuous @40įC

What are your opinions on this set? And what cases have you had luck with and why? I prefer reviews on techforums compared to those Newegg reviews so thanks for all your input!

p.s. Also if you guys have a power supply you've had great results with please share!

Yeah I actually do have the 900 in my wishlist. Do you have your ATI 5870 in that case? Just wondering about space issues.

I agree with muffin man. I like that combo. I just bought the Antec 300 and I had plenty of room to put my two GTX 260's in.

HAF 932 by Cooler Master has the best cooling/cable management at the price range. You can pick one up for about $150 at newegg right now. I will post a pic later tonight to show ya the whole deal.

Not that you would get one now, but the TJ-05 is terrible.
