Cheap but good looking mid-tower case for less than 90 USD?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.
I'm making a gaming computer (I'm new at this), and I need to know which brand and model case I should get, that looks good and fits in my budget. Also, I need to make sure it has at least 1 USB 3.0 slot, and needs to be compatible with a micro ATX motherboard (Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3)
A PSU is not vital, but if it is there, then it needs to have enough power to supply to the Sapphire OC edition of Radeon 7870 graphics card.
Thanks for your help!

If you can catch a Coolermaster Storm Scout 2 on sale then I'd probably go that route.

Is the NZXT 410 Phantom Mid-tower a good option? I like the look of it, and it's within my budget. Also, I think I might get the ASUS H87M-E LGA 1150 motherboard, because I've read that the B85 series is pretty bad overall
