Ultra makes a mean case:<br><br><a href="http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=186334&CatId=0" target="_blank">Link to TigerDirect</a><br><br><a href="http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=186336&CatId=0" target="_blank">Link to TigerDirect</a><br><br>
The second one has a window.<br><br>
You can get an "open box" one for less... you can get one with a PSU for the same price, after MIR.

It is important to watch out for the cheaper flashy cases... some of them can be far from sturdy. The Ultras are quite sturdy.<br><br>
These might be flashier for you:<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811208014" target="_blank">Link to NewEgg</a><br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811156135" target="_blank">Link to NewEgg</a><br><br>
Watch for the PSUs that come with the cheaper cases... they are usually crap.<br><br>
This is under $50 after MIR<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119110" target="_blank">Link to NewEgg</a><br><br>
This brand/type of case is usually fairly sturdy.

I personally like Coolermaster's value ended stuff (built two), Rosewill makes a decent case too, but neither brand are especially flashy. Feature packed? yes, but flashy they're not.

The Coolmaster Centurion is an excellent case and I second that recommendation. Good size, excellent airflow, and lots of expansion slots. Mine doesn't have the side window but other than that they are pretty close to the same case.

There are quite a few CoolerMaster cases under $50... the one I linked to is probably the one with the most "flash"<br><br>
Otherwise:<br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119077" target="_blank">This has a window.</a><br><br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811119104" target="_blank">This is silver.</a><br><br>
I could go on and on and on.........

I realize the CM Ammo is a little more but its an option. And the top CM Centurion case is probably one of the best in its price range.<br><br>

</div>The Centurion 532 is what I use and is breathes better than numerous other cases I've ever used. Actually impressed with it. Screwless drive holders, excellent airflow front to back and the buttons and usb's/firewire ports up front on top. Plus the caps on the rods dont fall off like many reviewers claim.<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

I like the Centurion with the window, very nice looking design, IF I wanted to, can you put lights in them?<br />
<br />
I like the green/black Xion case also.

You can always put lights in a case... a cathode kit, lit fans, the list goes on.

They usually just plug into your PSU, or can get get a Sunbeam Rheobus to control them. It will bascially allow you to turn them on and off. Also this case has MUCH better build quality then the Xion case.<br><br>
