What would be a good case for me under $100?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
*I need a wide case due to my cpu fan and any other heatsink upgrades in the future
*I REALLY want a cool looking case that's black(other colors would be nice but I want black for its main color) with led fans (preferably blue, purple, or red) and that looks robotic
*I also want a cool case with good airflow
* If the budget goes a bit over $100 for the one you recommended me that's okay but I'm not very wealthy

I got my Haf922 for 80 buck from newegg (onsale)with free shipping, still probadly close to that.Mine had front red leds in the fan, and they also have one with blue now.

PS just looked it is $100 plus free shipping, and a 10 buck rebate.

Sounds like the Coolermaster line will suit you, you can also pick up a used sniper for a good price in the FS section here

I think that any of the NZXT case listed here would be right up your alley. They've got that Robotic look, good airflow and some features in some them you will only find in some of those high end cases.

HAF 922, great airflow, widest standard midtower (NZXT Panzerbox is the only wider Mid Tower case but the PSU mounting is funky)
