Case Recommendations
 
I am looking for a $30 to $60 case with some form of cable management behind the side panel. I had the Antec 300 suggested to me, I don't like it. No cable management what so ever. I did find these two,

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE Precision Series PS05-B Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Tool-less Installation Design Computer Case

Newegg.com - Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Any other suggestions?
Thanks,
Cy

haf 912 hands down

or ps04b for classier looks.

Silverstone Precision series, Coolermaster Elite series, Zalman Z9 Plus.

Echoing Ilya, I vote for the Z9, Coolermaster Elite 430, or NZXT Beta EVO, or M59.

Good Budget Choices with good cooling options.

This computer is going to be for my Dad. He doesn't need all the crazy looks and lights. Just an fyi.
The Z9 doesn't look bad.

Anyone have a comment on the Thermaltake V3?

NZXT Beta then.

Don't forget NZXT Gamma. It's a bit weird looking, but has great airflow options

V3 is only worthwhile if you catch it on sale under $30, in terms of cooling and cable management it's slightly inferior to other ~$35-$40 cases.

Coolermaster 690 II .. I like the cable management and looks over the 912

Thanks for the info.

It's only going to have an i3, not a gaming rig. So mega cooling won't be needed.
