For cases in that price range , Id suggest something simple because you'll notice the lack of quality design and parts in something intricate looking.
Id suggest , this Rosewill case, Its simple and has lots of mod potential.
Or
This Tunig case , nice clean design , and again highly mod-able.

Apevia cases are good in my experience, just might want to replace the stock fans. Decent CFM but can be noisey unless you turn them down.

The cheaper aprevia cases are garbage. Flimsy, easily bent steel...

I had the X-plorer (same damn thing, but a different front bezel), and I hated it. If you want a good quality cheap case, look into Cooler Master. I have a Cooler Master Amo now, and it was only $60 after rebates. Very solid, attractive case. I've also worked with their $40 Centrion 5 model, and its very good quality also.

I bout it back when they were still aspire.

as soon as i got it i replaced the fans and the fan grills

it does scratch easy and its Mirror black finish

so it gets dirty and scratches like no other.

so i say dont take it anywhere unless you dont care about it gettin scratched.

I did have to take the front off and plug the top gague back in because it flickered on and off.

i just put a bunch of cathodes and stuff in it.

overall its a nice case ive had no real bad problems with it



another case that has a bunch of kool random crap that my friend just got is the raidmax Smilidon.

that thing is sturdy as hell and a very good deal
