if you want a cheap one, look at the xigmatek Asgard or xigmatek midgard.

This? Pretty much as 300 but bigger top fan & side fan and a air hole for PSU in bottom. And it is bigger! I enjoyed to build one rig onto that.

Does anyone know what the difference is from the basic and regular?

There is no Regular here in the USA, only the Basic and the Advanced. The advanced comes with an extra case fan (1 120s and 2 140 vs 2 120s), video card retention bracket, external sata doc, all 4 5.25" bays are tool less while the basic only has 2 tool less 5.25's. and a 2.5" ssd adapter. Unless you would use the top SATA X-Doc the Basic is a better deal overall since most people will want to replace the fans that come with either anyway.

See this video for more information. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AubfqMN9XgE&feature=player_embedded"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AubfqMN9XgE&feature=player_embedded[/ame]

Another good budget case is the Beta Evo. It's very popular around here, especially when it's on sale for $40 with free shipping as happens quite often.

The Xigmatek Utgard. Its a great case for 60 dollars, pretty big for a midtower but has excellent space and good cable management. Plus the orange fans are very custom looking.
