I need a new case, and i got 50 bucks/+-40€ for a job yesterday, and this is what i want to spend on a case, it might not be much, but it should do the job. The Antec 300 is sadly 10€ too much.

Any alternatives? I'm looking for a case with decent cooling, so 1-2 fans in the front, and 1-2 in the back/side. A window would be a big +. I suggest amazon.co.uk if you suggest one.

Also, i don't mind getting a cheap brand. I mean, it doesn't need to be Antec or Cooler Master. :D

I'm not sure if you were including delivery in your budget, but if you were:

Personally I'd just save the $10 and get the 300. It's a really good case for the money.

Start saving up, cheapest/ most decent thing in that price range is the 300. Once you pay less you get the same case with different plastic on the front between models.

Get the 300. I have one, and i can tell you its a great case as long as you don't mind the small size. Its built solid and has amazing airflow once you put some 120mm fans in both the intake slots. I really like the looks of it too, no overly flashy LEDs or lights, no out of place colors or designs, just a nice clean slick looking case.

I think i paid exactly $50 for mine back when i got it (2 years ago now?) from Newegg.

1. I asked for alternatives to the 300. 2. 2 years ago on the other side of the world is not relevant. 3. I got the NZXT m59. :D

Didn't that thing cost MORE than the antec 300 on amazon? I'm pretty sure it was...

Got a discount on that one. I hope it's good.

Looks like a decent case. My friend got an NZXT close to that one w/o the window and its made pretty well. You just need to buy some 140mm fans for the top and you're set.
