Trying to decide on a case, here are my top choices:

Fractal Design Force G - https://www.amazon.com/Fractal-Design-FD-CA-FOCUS-GY-W-Computer-Gunmetal/dp/B074PTNZ7F

Cougar MX330 - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811553031

My budget is $50

I haven't built mine yet, but I picked the Fractal G based on recommendations from multiple site users. It comes with 2 front mounted fans, so I added a fan to my parts list for a rear exhaust.
