Need suggestions on a case for this build!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm putting together a workstation for my uncle and aside from ram his only other requirement was he wanted a small form factor case, a slim desktop style case (similar to the dell he has now). Newegg doesn't seem to have many options or they look really cheap. I don't wanna go much over $80 for the case and I also need some power supply recommendations as I don't know much about the dimensions for smaller cases. Rough specs:

FX-6300
MSI 880GMS-E41 (m-ATX)
8-16GB of G.skill ripjaws
1-2 hard drives (one would be an ssd if i go with 2 hard drives)
DVD burner
Possibly a low powered discrete gpu (depending on money)

The rig won't be overclocked, I'd like to keep it on the quiet side as well. Thank you.

Width wise I feel its gonna be too chunky for my uncle.

What I was thinking was something more along the lines of this

It's just I've had a few rosewill cases in the past and I feel they've always been made really cheapy/flimsy. Looking for something that style and better build quality, newegg just doesn't seem to have many options.
