    Hello AT crowd. I need help picking a good case and I was hoping for your help.

    I'm fairly certain I will be using the following Micro ATX motherboard and am planning on going with a Radeon 7850 for the video card.

    Please suggest some cases for this mobo/video card setup that would be good for a first time builder. I would like to keep the cost of the case below $50 if possible and would really prefer a quiet, simple, subdued, and toned down case. Hopefully this is doable in a sub $50 case, but I can be flexible with things like quietness.

    Please no l33t gamer cases with lights everywhere.

    Also, in case it makes a difference, I don't plan on doing any overclocking so I'm not sure how much I should be concerned with thermals.

    Thank you all in advance for any help and suggestions that you could make.

    Take a look at this thread i made a little while ago about mATX cases.

    The Rosewill line M looks like the best for 50 bucks, that was my second choice. Core 1000 looked good too, though a bit large for my tastes. At a certain size point you may as well open yourself up to the vast amount of ATX choices even if you have an matx case.
