As far as looks it is important to some of us, material matters, the cooling your using also influences what ya need. Hobbyist build and mod pretty well any and everything on some cases. Just depends on what your into and what you can afford. Allot of times it has nothing to do what what ya need to get by, should say most of the time. The more ya know the more ya spend.

Really it depends on what u think is ok, cost usually doesn't matter. The level 10 case us said you understand is a $700 case. A friend has this case and has to externally mount his rad. Usually the bigger it is, the more you spend installing the toys. My fans were as much as most people's case's... My case used was the least expensive part in my system. What I added after cost 3 times the case cost.

As others have mentioned once do your other system parts the case is a givin to replace if your not already in a hi-end case to start with. Been jamming all of my watercooling into case's for a long time now. Even with an 18 x 18 x 18 cube am full in this system already and am only running one vid compared to others running up to 4 hi-end watercooled vids...
The Level 10 does not need an external rad,or anything else,for that matter. I have the Antec 920 cpu cooler that exhausts out the rear,and one 140mm front intake fan. That's it! No other cooling addons,mods etc. That case runs SUPER cool. I own it,and I STILL can't believe how cool and quiet everything is. I also doubt you'll find one for $700 in Canada.
