Default Computer cases

well i just currently bought a gateway computer that was on sale for 400 dollars. but anyways, im thinking about getting a larger case kuz frankly, this thing is hella small, any ideas? im looking for one under 40 dollars, no fancy ones with side windows and flashy colors, i like plain and simple. Im just looking for a beastly large case. so any ideas guys? i was thinking this one right here, i kinda like it:

The COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 is the best of the ones you chose, but it's also the most expensive. The one From Geeks isn't bad.

Here's a few more under $40:

GIGABYTE GZ-X2BPD-500

Rosewill R6426-P BK

SIGMA ORCA-WB

well the thermaltake case isnt as wide as i would hpoe, because the fan on my PSU, also has a tunnel on it so it sticks out about 7 inches already, so 8 or more would be helpfull for width.

I used to have a gateway case and I think a good improvement from that would be the Cooler Master Elite 330. I have this case and it's very reliable. Cooler Master uses a no-screw set-up to get all your hard drives and optical drives installed. The only problem in this case is that the front panel accumulates a lot of dust, especially if you have an intake fan. This case has space for 2x120mm fans and 1x92mm if you remove the side air duct. Overall, it's a great <$50 case.
