PC Case Recommendations

I am planning on building my first computer but not sure which case to get. I am looking for a great tempered glass, fairly compact mid-tower with RGB lighting & my budget is less than $250. Please give me some recommendations. TY.

Tiddy-bits:

Generally RGB isn't integrated with the case. It typically should be sold separately unless it's unique like something similar to the InWin Infinity. This due to there being RGB sync technology incorporated in most gaming branded motherboards.

I personally don't look at tempered glass cases since I prefer my Define S series case without glass. It would also come down to preference.

Though manufacturers I can recommend taking a look at for their build quality would be...
be quiet! Pure Base
Corsair has a plethora of popular cases
Fractal Design Define Series for minimalism look and sound dampening foam
In Win or Lian Li have a few with built in RGB
NZXT for really square minimalism

There's many other brands out there but majority of them are really poor quality. A few reputable brands I didn't mention but I personally think they're better off making other components than cases.

Phanteks Evolv X 

 

I wanted one of those myself, but I need something with unobstructed airflow.

(SBB Storm) Thank for your reply. Is this Fractal Case similar to the one you got? https://www.colamco.com/product/fractal-design-meshify-c-computer-case-fd-ca-mesh-c-bko-1539387

I have a Phanteks case myself and can't speak highly enough of them. I got this one, specifically, like 5 years ago and I expect to have it for at least another 15 years.

Yes, though in white so that I can go to the beach with it without getting as much sun heat as a black case. /s
