Best case to get brother for Christmas

My brother wants a new PC case for his rig as he's using a super old dell case right now. I'm having trouble deciding which one to get him because there's so many decent looking options to choose from.

requirements are ATX, decent airflow, see-through side panel (doesn't have to be real glass), and he really wants it to be white.

I would like it to be under $55, $60 absolute max

Any suggestions?

Hard to beat coolermaster IMO

Prices are still generally high though

Not really any white cases with decent airflow, 4000D is $80, and there's a likely lower build quality DIYPC white case with a mesh front.

I have a master box of some sort, the one in my sig is wrong i think its the mb520, but it is an utter pain in the ass to build in, cable management options where eh, airflow is not great at all, the black brim on the tempered glass panel isn't fully coated, and the rgb shines through it. i would of went with a meshify c if they were available when i bought, but they weren't, and i regret not waiting lol.

With your budget, I came across this case which is dirt cheap here in my country. it's about 30 dollors more if you get it from US. 

https://www.amazon.com/ABKONCORE-Cronos-Tower-Pre-Installed-Acrylic/dp/B07T582HGJ

 

you can search your online store at your country .. as the online shop in Singapore is selling at SGD $49 SGD = USD $36-37

https://shopee.sg/🔥HOT-ITEM🔥ABKONCORE-CRONOS-650-ATX-GAMING-CASING-i.193454747.5205265464

 

here is a detailed video about this case. do note that it's not with tempered glass.

 

 

as for white, get a spray can. maybe use plastic dip white. so if you dont like that color you can just peal it off and change color
