Decent Budget Case Recommendation

I'm starting a low end PC build. Ryzen 3 2200g, Matx motherboard, 1 x 2.5 ssd, 1 x 3.5 hdd . I'm having a hard time finding what seems like a decent case on the cheaper side of things. The only requirements I have is clearance for a 158mm cpu cooler, and hopeful $50 or less. Does anyone have some recommendations? I would appreciate some suggestions.

Ballin on a budget https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...95&ignorebbr=1

One of the reviews states that they fit a 150mm cooler with room to spare.

this was one I had my eye on, perfect for what I want but, my only reservation was I could not find a definite answer what the cpu cooler clearance was.

I haven't actually used one of these, but it looks great for a budget case and fits up to 168mm coolers - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16811853064

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
