Best case for $150?

Finding it difficult to pick a case online and don't really have access to see them physically. Suggestions on cases around the $150 range for higher end gaming?

Case doesn't really need to be worth $150.00 to feel and look like it.

What are you looking to build in it and what color schemes/features do you want?

Mostly for games like black dessert and battlefield. I tend to lean towards the more basic but sheik designs with plenty of room to customize as I need to

But what hardware are you going to use inside?

What size motherboard?

What size & how many GPU(s)

What about cooling?

That's my proposed build with a popular case I added but it's too flashy for me

Theres always the NZXT Noctis (https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-can450wm1)

However it does not accomodate a DVD reader.

Fractal Design S? NZXT S340? A case doesn't really matter, as long as it has good airflow.

A lot of people care about the aesthetic of their computer so having more than just good airflow is important.

Go for the NZXT Phantom *Link here: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/nzxt-case-caph410w1 * It looks really nice and sleak,has good cable managment,and can fit some of the newer GPUs. There's also a black version if you don't like this one.

Abit more then $150, but if its looks your after, the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv is stunning:

The Enthoo Luxe as already pointed out is another really nice shout for $124: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-case-phes614lbk

A slightly smaller case which has not issue with ATX but looks the part for $100 is the Acrylic Panelled Phanteks Enthoo Pro M: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/phanteks-case-phes515pabk great cable mangaement and airflow.

In Win 805 is a stunning tempered glass case for $159: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/inwin-case-805red this one has red accents to complement your MSI components.
