Motherboard is gonna depend o what color scheme I decide to go with. Probably 150-200 range.

Memory will be ddr4 2133 or 2400. I'll find a color to fit the scheme

GPU is gonna be a 1070

How about this one? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jkBv6h/nzxt-case-921rb001bl

It'll be well within your budget. There's also a red and black version.

That was actually the first case I looked at but I want a nice side window to show everything inside. Thanks for the input anyway

The H440 is similar and has a case window, but it's more "minimalist" and less "gaming design" than the Guardian.

Well the Thermaltake core P5 is quite unique.

In the event you stumble upon an extra $200 to add to your case budget, few consumer cases stand out quite as much as this one.

Thermaltake P5 is very interesting, Corsair Air 540 is very clean and if you have plenty of room a Thermaltake core X5 or X9.

Depends on if you want the case to stand out or what's inside it.
