Cases are personal preference. What looks good to me may look like crap to you, or vice versa. Plus you didn't state whether you want a mATX, mid-tower, full-tower, black, beige, etc. And because of the high shipping costs ($15-20), it's *usually* best to buy cases locally. Before you go nuts looking for a case that has numerous cooling fans, you should have a look at this article:

Another thing to be aware of is that the PSU in a $50 case will most likely be garbage. A decent quailty PSU costs about $50 by itself.

the only problem is the side panel with the plexiglass broke and had to replace it, and there went my side fan also
i never installed a side fan in the new plexiglass, should i have?
or should i just leave it how it is?

Did you check the link I provided about proper cooling? Side panel fans are NOT recommended. And just to give you can example about "personal preference", I do NOT like that case & would NOT have recommended it.

also i see they have the psu's on the bottom, how would i mount my psu? right now i have a case where it is mounted on top and i have the psu mounted so the fan is facing towards the ground. would i have to flip the psu and have the fan facing the cieling or would i still leave it facing the ground? if its facing the ground (and its mounted on the bottom)
whats the purpose of the fan?

Do you realize the cases you have chosen do NOT include a power supply which will need to be purchased in addition to the cases, thereby blowing your new $100 budget.
Check the specifications for each case you choose to check if power supply is included.
