I've finally gotten sick of my current case and need to upgrade, so I'm starting a new build, starting with the case, I have my sights set on the Antec Dark Fleet DF 85 but I often wonder when I shop for parts, if I could do better at the same price point,

So my question is, does any one know of a better case at the same price point, this case will cost me 153 with shipping. ( I'm in the USA )

Any suggestions or links to a possible better case, would be much appreciated!

Edit: I should of added why I was looking at that case, its because where I live, there's a lot of dust and it soften hot, so the large amount of fans and dust filters for the intake fans is what got me interested in it.

Not a fan of the DF series at all. In my mind it's one of the worst lines of cases ever. It feels cheep, looks cheap, it's strangely skinny, hard to work in, hot swap rails get in the way, the list goes on. In broad strokes, and CM or Corsair case around the same price will be better for starters.

The only other cases I was considering were

NZXT Phantom and maybe the COOLER MASTER HAF 932

It'd cost me $186 and it has no dust filters.
