Default I need a case

I need a case for the gaming computer i'm building. I could use a few suggestions for something around 70$ with a power supply and atleast a side viewing window.

I was looking at that today and really liked it, that power supply is awesome for the price. One thing i was a little apprehensive about was the size. I may be moving this around a bit so I can't have something thats huge like that. But I may end up buying nonetheless.

For the price and included 500W powersupply, I'd be willing to overlook the size. It's also at a rediculously good price for the time being.
