Mid-tower or full size? Certain brand you like? Air Cooled or Liquid cooled?

i paid 54 i think for a coolermaster 690, its a good case, it has everything you want, including holes at the back for water cooling. Not sure how much it is in $$ tho.

I am using a CoolerMaster 932 I am quite happy with it, and its Air Cooling capabilities. Though, you need to have it out in the open, due to the size unless your desk has penty of airflow around the case to allow incoming, and outgoing air to flow freely.

I have an Antec 902 and it's a wonderful case.

Also the NZXT Gamma is a great case for the price. I just purchased one and I love it.
$40 bucks off newegg, check it out.
