So i need a new case but have a limited budget of £50 due to me going to swap my PSU for a modular one and grab an SSD which'll eat up most of the remaining cash i can allocate to PC parts this year therefore need suggestions on what i case to consider,

At the moment i have 2 possibility's. The first is an Antec One Black Midi Tower Chassis w/ USB3.0 since i can get it for £38.23 inc. VAT from aria plus the free delivery i have available with my aria forum account, it has black internals which look to have a good layout to them along with it externally looking not bad if a bit plain and simple which i quite like anyway. The 2nd possibility is a Sharkoon T28 since the layout internally looks not bad and externally it's not bad looking plus it has an added bonus of a proper side panel window i.e. no fan mounts, grills, odd shapes just a straight up large window to show of the internals of the computer.

Are there any other cases i should consider? I just need a ATX mid tower with decent cable management options, space to mount something like a Eco A.L.C/H80, some decent airflow and good build quality. Anything extra on top of that is a bonus but not exactly needed.

Zalman z11, its £5 over budget with delivery from scan (might be a cheaper option for delivery but im not sure) and is based on the z9 case they used to do but with some improvements/tweaks and the z9 was a really good case for the money.

The only downside realy to the cable management is there is no grommets on the routing holes.

Either one of those cases is fine for your budget. Found a Coolermaster 690 II Lite is good one with good airflow and cable management options, its £15 more.but worth it if you can stretch that far. If not, any of the two are fine i guess

I think the Cooler Master Elite 430 or Elite 435 (i think it's called) might be of that price range, they'd be worth a look!

Nzxt Tempest is like the mini version of the switch 810, It's like 50 Euro 70 American, I love mine and I recommended it to 2 of my friends we all like ours

It's and "airflow" case

Dust Filters

Supports h80 in the roof or exhaust

has 8 HDD bays supports SLI

3 drive bay

Huge space behind the motherboard for cable management

buy the Elite version though it has USB 3.0

Would definitely go for the Bitfenix Shinobi.
