what case?

Im looking to upgrade my case when i buy my new GPU and CPU cooler (GTX 470 and h50-1 water cooler) and im pretty sure its not going to fit in side my current case. I need a case around the 100 mark as money is going to be a bit tight after buying the GPU and the cooler. Any ideas??

I like my Antec 300 case a lot, as it is very large. It has room for all my hard drives (I have 3, but it can hold 6). I am also using 2 out of my 3 possible 5.25 bays.

There's plenty of room for fans, and it is easy to open up.

It's not a real beauty to the eye, but it gets the job done.

You can buy the Antec 300 case for $60 (about 44): Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

If you want a little bit more, you can get the Antec 900 for $100 (74): Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

You could have a look at coolermaster cases they are really good when it comes to space for water cooling (some have pre cut holes at the back for the pipes) etc. and they are well constructed.

The HAF 932 is just about in your budget (quick search showed 103 inc. del )

But if you save a bit (around 130 squid) you could have a look at the COSMOS S
I've got this case and it is just brilliant (tons of room inside) --- worth every penny
