Need help choosing a case for my new build

Hello community, once more.

So I've recently bought all the parts for my new rig and here they are:
-CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 @ 3.40GHz (Boost up to 3.80GHz);
-RAM: G.Skill 8 GB RAM 2133MHz CL11 or the Corsair Vengeance Performance 1600MHZ CL9 (not sure yet, suggestions would be helpful too on this one!);
-Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX;
-GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 670 Power Edition;
-HDD: Western Digital 1TB Caviar Blue 7200rpm 64MB SATA III 3.5;
-Power Supply: Corsair CX750 750W;
-CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

So, the only component that's missing is the case and I don't really know which one I should buy. I'm in a budget of 100$ (max) for the case and I would like it to have a side panel/window, it can have LEDs as well, would like it to have pre-mounted fans as well and finally I'd like it to be a Mid Tower case. I've been looking around on websites and even threads here on the forums and I can't really decide. I've been looking at the Sharkoon T9 Value White case for a while now but I'm not sure if it's trust-worthy if you know what I mean (and it's around 65$).

    I would recommend the cases in the previous comment too. However, I recommend you go to http://pcpartpicker.com/ plug in your part list they will find any incompatibilities then you should go to case a narrow your search. Easy and simple, however I go "new egg hunting" (go around and look at their videos), because videos (in my opinion) are better than any forum, because you know what your getting.

    Thank you guys very much for the help! After doing some more research and some "new egg hunting", as Thatniceguy mentioned, I'm going to get the CM Storm Enforcer case, seems to have really nice reviews. I might buy an additional CM 200mm Red LED fan and install it at the top of the case, do you guys think it's needed or will I be just fine with the 2 fans that already come in the case? Thank you, once again!
  4. No problem.Your welcome!Good choice as for your question.I think you would be fine without it.If you can afford it do it.If not you could always add it later.
  5. If you can afford more fans and you case supports it, it is always good to get more fans, period. And, you welcome.
