he said $1k budget, so that would lead me to believe for his entire setup and not just the case. I would have to recommend either the Antec 900, or the Thermaltake Armor.

well for one thing the p190 is an awsome case to buy, dont listen to what others say. its great and lots of room to work with. and you can do lots of mods with it like i have. just check out my tut etc.. in my sig area. comes with 2xpsu=1200watts. so the case is actually around 250. and psu are like 240 or so each. maybe even 110 each.

What are your system requirements/priorities? Good looks? Optimal air cooling? Size? What kind of cooling system will you be running (LCS, air cooling, etc.)?

This is a deceptively difficult question. You need to supply more information for people to give you an intelligent recommendation.

Good cases that I would just list off the bat:

CoolerMaster 690
Antec 900
Antec P182
LianLi Cases (kinda tricky, gotta browse their itinerary for exactly what you want)

But txtmstrjoe is right. We need a bit more information to see if we can find a case that would fulfill your needs the best.

I know im gonna sound stupid now but... try not to spend too much of budget on the case, I've never been one for expensive saces, I think your best bet would be either Coolermaster CM690, Antec 300 or 900, or Antec P180 at most.
