Which case should I choose?

Currently I'm using a no-name cheap case which have a very bad airflow design. I have looked through reviews for several cases and narrow down to a few choices which I hope I can get some advises on.

They are:
  • Antec Two Hundred
  • Cooler Master Elite 310
  • Cooler Master Centurion 5
  • Cooler Master Gladiator 600
  • Lian Li LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K58W
I'm leaning more on Antec Two Hundred side (however the design is kinda...) since it is the only case among the list that comes with air filter because my place tends to be quite dusty (God knows why) and I want as little dust in the case as possible.

Which case have a better airflow or dust prevention in your opinion? Anyone have a better case to suggest me other than the list I've stated above?

BTW, please keep the suggestion of case around the price of cases I've stated above (about 80 USD) or cheaper, sadly I do not have a big budget.

Thanks alot!

As ugly as it is I would say the 200.

I don't care much for the other cases.

Do you have a price range ?
My budget for the case would be about 80 in USD (preferably not more than 80), therefore I think Antec 200 would be the better choice among the list unless someone out there can name me a better one.

What about Lian Li LanCool Dragon Lord PC-K58W? Not good? It doesn't come with an air filter though.
Go for the CM Elite for now and save up until you can buy a better case.
For the price range you have I would say to get a Cooler Master 690 or Antec 300 .

You could maybe even find a Cooler Master Scout for that price.

All way better imo
Nah I couldn't get those case with the budget I have at the place I am.

Anyway, I think I might be getting the Lian Li one instead since the ventilation seems better compared to Antec 200.
i think the centurian is good, not 100 percent sure,the main thing in a case is cable management,dont know why ever case has no room behind the mother board tray when there should be 2 inches back thereor 1 1/2 inches, and dont know why they use tiny motherboard standoffs when they should use 1 inch standoffs,pretty much every case out there is the same square box,instead of cutting 100 holes around the motherboard tray like the corsair obsidian,they should cut one big one under the mother board with large standoffs,the cases now all suck
Sigh sadly, I'm not living in US, therefore I'm eligible for those deals.

Currently, I'm just deciding whether to go for Lian Li case or Antec 200. Then again, no one recommend Lian Li dragonlord case.

Got to make a decision soon before thursday come.

Then again, no one recommend Lian Li dragonlord case.

If I had to choose I´d go for the Lian Li , it looks better than the Antec 200.

I'd go for the lancool dragonlord infact i am when i get some money together it looks great and you can't argue the brand
Went ahead and bought the Li Lian LanCool case. It's pretty good.
id go for the lian li it is a well built case for the money and its from one of the top case builders to boot and it looks better than the antec imo
what about the antec 300 very similar to the 200 but looks a lot nicer and not very much difference price wise
Lian li lancool. What about k-62 though?

This right here. For a basic case, this thing is really nice.
