Default Need help choosing case and fan setup

I need help choosing a case and cooling system for my new computer i am going to build. My computer will look like this:

Mobo- MSI K8T800 Pro Chipset for 939 CPU
CPU- AMD Anthlon 64 3000+, 512kb L2 cache 939 Pin
Hard Drive- Seagate 80gb 7200rpm
Memory- V-Data 184 Pin 512mb DDR PC3200
Drives- Sony CDRW/DVD
Video Card- Sapphire ATI Radeon 9600 256mb DDR 128 bit, DVI/TV OUT 8x AGP

I am on a budget of $50 for the case and cheap as possible for the fans. I want good air flow and keep cool without any modding of the case or anything else. The PSU i have is Powmax Demon 480W. Thank you.

#1) http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
#2) http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE

both of them would work as budget cases

also, as another reminder, i really don't think you'll be satisfied with the 9600

you'll need either a 9600pro or 9600xt (there's refurbished 9600xt's that are relatively cheap, new ones aren't that expensive compared to the 9600 either)

i've seen raidmax cases and they look nice, but i wouldn't trust their psu

if you know that the raidmax psu is decent (read the reviews), then go for it, it's a pretty good case for the money

although i'd suggest my case as a budget case (i have a antec slk3700B, it's like $57 and doesn't have a psu, so i guess the raidmax would be a good choice seeing the number of reviews it has)
