Hi there! You should be able to do very well at that price.

I have recently bought an Antec 300 as a budget case for my LGA 775 system, and it's great. It's not flashy and has no window on the side panel to show off the very sexy components inside, but then again, I spent $60USD on it.

I also recently purchased an NZXT Tempest 410 Elite case, and found it to be superior even to the Antec 900 case I had been using prior. The cable management in this case is unbeatable, and I got it on sale, with a rebate, for a total investment after the rebate of only 50 dollars USD. It has a weird front panel USB setup though (3 2.0 ports and one 3.0 port meaning 3 internal headers are taken up... dumb, but my ONLY complaint about this case).

The Antec 900 case is also a good case, and has been recently updated for USB 3.0 ports, but it doesn't have much in the way of cable management. Great cooling though via the 200mm big boy fan on top.

Good luck! thumb.gif

Edit: Also, the Scout case you mentioned is $80 USD on Newegg...

That Factal Core is too small anyway,your mobo wont fit.

Keep your eyes on Scan' "Today Only" deals and maybe check Cooler Master parts store for refurb cases and see if you can grab a CM690II they are nice case for the £ .
