Hi all,

Looking to get my gf a new case for her budget build:

Gigabyte 970A-D3 (ATX form factor I believe)
Mushkin Silverline 4gb ddr3 1333
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black edition
Arctic Freezer Pro 7 heatsink
XFX GT240 512MB

Top 3 priorities:
1) The smaller the better (she moves alot)
2) Looks/Flashy Lights (CHYEA!

)
3) Price! (willing to spend up to $60-70 if justified)
If the case has good airflow that would be a bonus.

THANKS ALL!

CM Storm Enforcer if you like eye-catchingness.

Personally, I love the 690II because its simple design draws looks. Highly stylized cases are fairly common.

NZXT M59 is good for its price as well. Lots of unusual angles. Or the NZXT Lexa S, or the CM Storm Scout.

Edit: Sleepin ninjaed me. Goes to show how good the scout is though!
Those steel handles cannot be beat for portability.

Bitfenix just came out with a new budget case, the Bitfenix Merc Alpha. $40, decent cable management. Bought one for my wife's computer.

Don't know how it is in actual performance myself yet, but still a suggestion.

The XION Predator seems to fit the bill for what you want nicely. 49.99 (after MIR) Great cable management, its small, has plenty of extra fan mountings, and it looks "flashy".

Did not realize you were in Canada. The above case is good case but if you don't want to order in the US and clean out the pocket book on shipping. You can get a Coolermaster Haf 912 from NCIX It has good airflow (can support 200mm up top) and cable managment all tho it is larger then the above case. If you want flash swap out the stock fans with one's that have blue/red LED's

Thanks for all the suggestions guys.

I really like the M59 - going to pass it off to her and see what she thinks. All these links make me wish I had shopped around more before I settled on an Antec900 T.T

I apologise cause I'm sure this is a dumb question:

The mobo is an ATX i believe, does that mean its entire setup wouldn't fit in the NZXT vulcan? I REALLY like that case.
