Default Recommend a good case

My buddy has $36 bucks to get a computer case. We would like to have a side window since we are tricking this computer out with lights and such. Also if you can, find one that accepts micro atx and atx. Thanks

check out the centurion 5. It is about 40 or so? Why would it need to accept both micro and standard atx?

Is it your buddy we set up the c2d for?

that case looks like it is going to crush under the pressure of a keyboard
