My System Specs

Default

Zalman Z9 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case Black 3X5.25 1X3.5 5X3.5INT No PS W/ Fan Controller & Temp Display - DirectCanada

Probably the best value on the market ATM. Load it up with 7 fans (comes with 4 decent ones) and you'll have your good cooling. Fan placement is very well thought out, especially the side fans, they won't obstruct large tower coolers and provide RAM/VRM/GPU with decent cooling. Quality and features are surprisingly good for a case in this price range, there's actually space behind the motherboard tray for routing thicker wires.

But that being said, spending more on a case usually translates to being able to use the case longer and throughout multiple builds. (better features, more room, less broken plastic parts, etc) It's not necessary to spend a ton though, as long as you pick the right one for your needs.
