Default Need a cheap case with a window

My old case has so much dust gathered in it, its tough to clean out. I need something that has a window and is easy to clean and can take 4 harddrives and 2 media drives(dvd-writer and reader). ANy suggestions for a sub $100 case?

If you *must* have a window get this: Lian Li PC-65

I have a PC-7B (basically the same, just without window) that I have had since 2004 housing my old AMD rig.

I have a special edition of this case from http://www.xoxide.com/. I like it a lot. The removable motherboard tray is really nice.

This is not a recomendation, but it has a window.

I always liked the idea of buying a good case then getting some clear acrylic cut
and making my own clear side panel with the outer metal parts of the drive bays sprayed to match the outside of the case ,or maybe red, But then those thoughts turned to anger, then hunger then I slept, so it was never resolved.

Since it doesn't look like the previous posters in this thread read what you wanted, here is a CHEAP case with a window, and decent ventilation to boot. And it fits an 8800GTX without modification:

I know some people think performance pcs sucks, but I think they could make you a pretty damn good side window, and I strongly recommend panaflo fans (High perf or ultra perf (both 120mm.) If used effectively they can cool the ambient temps by like more than 20 C.
