Doing a budget build for someone. Looking to come in at $300 before OS & computer monitor. Advice on which of the above cases would be appreciated. I hate building with crappy quality parts, but I'm looking for a balance of cost this time and the convenience of not having to shop for my own PSU. I will stay under $90 (before tax & shipping) unless the buyer wants to pay extra for the slim design.

Thanks. Thoughts on quality, noise, temps, and PSU.
