There are better cases for the money than the Centurion 5

I recommend the Newegg.com - Rosewill R5605-BK Black 0.8mm SECC cold rolled Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

judging by his two other choices, that case has no window and is boring, therefore wouldn't fit his style

Well, I don't really care about his stype at all, if he's willing to spend 50$ he can get a decent case, or a POS case that has a useless window or something.

What good is an "exciting" case, anyway?

Suit yourself.

Suit yourself.
The ultra cases he posted look good, are well built (i own one, made of steel) and around the same price. Either of those would have been fine.

I missed those. I don't know much about those cases, and TigerDirect's pictures don't help much anyway.

I was referring to the cases like the Logisys, Raidmax, Xion, etc.

=\

I would still get the R5601 or R5605.
