Man, the M59 for $80 is a good deal, and I don't like the look of the 902 and the Storm Sniper's front looks ugly to me. M59

The M59 is solid. Purchased mine for $30 shipped so no brainer then.
My biggest complaint would be the back panel not having a "comfortable" amount of room for hiding wire's though it can be done.
The CD bezel it comes with will only work in the top bay and when a drive is there it blocks the front 120/140 top fan.
Well equipped with filters, mesh grill's, ssd mounts, psu filter is removable, nice paint finish, 2 quiet 120mm fans one with blue led.

It all comes down to appearance and price for most when choosing a case.
What's lacking with the M59 is minimal.

Thanks for the quick replies guys, to answer your questions, budget is prob no higher than 150 ish
and im not a big fan of the 690's, acquired taste in my opinion.
i do want something with a window though, i like the m59 because its cheap and looks decent and the other two in my opinion have some nice features.
