    $300 to spend

    Ive figured out the rough cost of my next build and ill have roughly 300 usa to spend on a new case.

    make some suggestions. im open!

    its gonna be air cooling
    but id like a fairly silent case, but i am going to line it brim to brim with acoustic dampener

    You will get better recomendations if you list what you are getting for parts, how you want to cool them, and what use the machine will see.

    You can have a PC-A71 and buy an extra windowd side panel from Performance-PCs (depends if you like window or not)

    Antec 1200, great case. I love mine. I just don't like the look of the HAF which is personal preference

    Both are very high quality cases and in your price range.

    +1 for HAF

    Get the Lian Li PC-A70 and 2 pairs of MM hard drive brackets with it. No cutting at all required to fit them - just remove the hard drive cage and fit the mounts to the front fans.

    The Silverstone TJ09 (or TJ10) is the best air cooled case I've ever owned. The seperate compartment for the HDs is fantastic, and the build quality is second to none.
