If you can swing 54$ (which includes shipping) I would get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147153

that price includes shipping

Tom's did a nice write up on 50$ range cases

Haf 912 but of those I would go with NZXT BETA EVO Classic Series looks like better cable management access to the back of the mobo with out removal and top fans.

If my current case does end up working, the PSU is at the top. I suppose everyone will suggest getting a new case JUST for the thermal design...? But then I have to get a decent case that has the chamber for the PSU so heat doesn't rise in the poorly bottom mounted cases.

Not necessary.

The design is such that the fans evacuate the heat from the case plus the fan on the power supply is already cooling itself off so heat from the power supply is a non-issue and is running cooler because the bottom of the case is actually the coolest.

See, when a power supply is top mounted in a case and because heat rises the power supply itself in most instances IS hotter because it's taking in some of the heat from below it in the case plus whatever heat the power supply is producing and evacuating it.
