Sounds like you want to have the perfect case and not pay for it. The above recommendations are about as cheap as you are going to get and meet all your criteria. You either going to have to cut some needs or increase your budget IMO.

Very true.

To the OP, the antec 1100 is a "super mid tower" which has the same amount of expansion slots as a full tower has. So pretty much it's a full tower. I have no clue why they chose to name it this way.

And the NZXT Switch 810 is only 20 dollars more then your said budget, which can supposedly be gone over. I don't see how that is way over.

The switch 810 is definitely as close as you will come to those listed features and price.

OP, I'm not sure where you are. Your profile says London. If you're in London, Ontario, you can see that the Switch 810 is priced reasonably:
NZXT Switch 810 Full ATX Steel Case 4X5.25 6X3.5 2XUSB3.0 Audio and Mic Input - Black - NZXT - CA-SW810-B1
Canada Computers | Cases | NZXT SWITCH 810 Full Tower Chassis WHITE


If you're in London, England

If you don't particularly like the case itself, well, you're going to be hard pressed to find all of the features you listed without paying over 200 bucks. Plain and simple.

I don't think it looks weird at all. One thing for sure,for cooling and the amount of room in that case for any future upgrades,the Level 10 GT will be the one and only case you will need for a long long time. You can put ANYTHING in that beast. It's not much over your budget,and damn well worth the miimal exta cost. Step out and BUY it. You won't be sorry.

HAF 932? Full tower, even takes E-ATX mobos, you can put a 2P or 4P system. The only thing that it doesn't have is the hot swap. But why would you need that anyway? the hot swap was invented for servers, to avoid the downtime. you really need that option? 145$ on newegg.ca

What about the HAF X, a little over your budget, but not much.
