Hi everyone. I'm going to be uber modding a new case for my old computer. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me a cheap, PLAIN but good case to mod.

CPU: Intel core 2 duo e6600 @ 2.4ghz Mobo: Asus Striker Extreme RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2gb Video Card: EVGA 8800GTX Power Supply: OCZ GameXstream 700W

Well I wanted the case to have a plain kinda flat front because I'm going to be putting a 120mm fan and a 90mm fan on the front. As for my budget, I really don't want to exeed 100 dollars.

Here you go... A modders dream..
PLENTY of space.. It is FULL tower..

VERY easy to mod and super cheap, which leaves you plenty of money for the modding equipment..

However, this is a steel case. Hey, I would do that mod in a minute......

But, it you want something smaller, then these cases are great to mod (IMO) and are aluminum..

LOL..:Thumb
Have to plug the sponsors....

Now, here is a HUGE selection for under 30.00 (and massive for under 50.00)

Granted, I do not know what stores the OP shops at (being in Canada)

But back to OP.. Are you thinking of a particular theme?
Or just looking for functionality? Air cooled? Water cooled?

Considering the budget is 100.00 (is that only for the case?)
What kind of mods are you thinking of doing? (or is that a secret:spin )
Do you have access to plenty of tools?

Eh, just a few questions.. I guess, I am somewhat curious....
