Default Good Case

Well, i'm building a second rig and i need a good case.

But i'm short on dough, so this case will have to be around the 100 dollar area. And i'm not a fan of tiny cases so a full size one would be good.

i'm in love with this one:

What are performance cases, and what makes them "performance".

What's a great case around 100 or less.

sup. yeah, dude, thats a pretty sweet case there. ive seen that before and i must say i just love the top unqiue usb thingy and all that. its ncie. as for perfomance cases, i think it means that have something special aobut them, like they have unique features or have good options, offer a lot of space, and/or are made for gaming. something like that.
here are a few cases that i love:
