If you can stretch that just a bit, the Corsair 650D is $209.99 on Newegg, might be able to get it cheaper elsewhere.

Check out Lian Li cases as well.

For $180 I don't think that's possible. I mean, you get those two fans in the front and the one in the back.

I'd go with the HAF X personally. Its got great cable management and airflow, and more than enough room for anything you would put in it. If it seems to big for your needs then go with the 932. I like the way this series looks too, but I guess thats a personal thing.

You might also consider then NZXT Phantom

For 180$ you'll get a case with a few fans and places for several more. I've found 7 so far in the NZXT Phantom with minimal modding. Though it looks like you are one of those HAF people, they are comparable as far as the fans are concerned. The 932 and Phantom come down to aesthetic arguments.

Black White or Red 140$
