Hmmm maybe look at a Bitfenix Raider or a Fractal Design Arc Mini. I know it's over budget, but if you like the Arc Mini, then I'd also suggest taking a look at the Arc Midi.

As mentioned above, the Arc Midi is worth checking out, as is Corsairs Carbide 300R.
I'm a star-ship super-tower refugee myself...no regrets.

He has a full Atx board. I doubt he wants to downsize so far as to need to replace his mobo.

 

If you don't mind doing a small bit of modding (cut a fan hole) The Lian Li A05N (not FN model) is a great small case. All that is suggested is cutting a hole in the top for an exhaust/intake. Only major issue with the case is the lack of cable management. Check us out here.
