Most any ATX case should be OK. For just under $30 (including shipping), this seems to be your best bet: APEX PC-389-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

if $30 is really your limit go with what AR posted, if you can stretch it to $55 I would suggest the Antec 300, it's cheap, has good build quality and good airflow (excellent airflow if you add a few more fans later on), it also has free shipping right now with promo code EMCYPYX44...

great little case that would last you a long time...

What he said. The extra holes are so it's compatible with mATX motherboards as well.
