I'm looking for a decent case for a pc build on a budget. I've went back and forth, and have found some cheapies, but not sure if they are exactly what I'm looking for.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16811147030

This is the case I have been pondering. It is really extremely cheap, and it looks like it'd get the job done.

FWIW, My system will consist of:

3000 sempron overclocked ($30)
MSI SLI motherboard (wanted something good, that I can reuse and upgrade cpu's in a bit)
6800GT (~$100)
1gb of ram ($55 from newegg)
160gb hd (already have it)

Does anyone have any objections, or better suggestions to this case for the same and/or only slightly more money. As you can see something that stays at least semi cool is of importance for overclocking purposes.. I also plan on getting a dx10 vid card in the future, so a little space is nice.

Thanks,
Josh

another vote for a centurion 5 here or other coolermasters that are on sale at svc.com. and if you don't have a psu a budget xclio psu should be enough for your setup.

The important thing here is, are you buying just a case, or a case and a PSU?

if you want just a case, something cheap, that functions as a case, then I would suggest this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147074 it has the best build quality of cases in that price range. it's a slightly newer revision of the rosewill cases.

If you want one with a PSU... well, I would highly suggest buying the above mentioned cheap case, and getting a somewhat better PSU along with it, I believe there was a 580w sunbeam for $20 on newegg as well, which should be more reliable than a 450w rosewill.
