I'm looking to replace my computer case in the near future but as I'm not too experienced with this kind of stuff I wanted to know of any suggestions or thoughts about what I should get.
This is my current MoBo and setup:
Lenovo H530s Intel CPU Desktop Motherboard H81H3-LM 5B20G05102 SPP0G05203
GTX 1050Ti Single Fan
500 Watt PSU

I need something with more air flow than the case that the computer came in, and for future upgrade potential as well.

Does the following link match your current system?

According to the following link, your motherboard is micro ATX.

So you will need a case that accepts Micro ATX motherboards.

But check all of the case's measurements to ensure that other required components will fit in. E.g., PSU.

And if you are planning to add more components then plan for a higher wattage PSU.

Details matter.

Mine came with an i5-4460, and I purchased the 1050Ti and the EVGA PSU seperate. I'm still running a stock cooler on my socket as well so that isn't an issue. I'm aware that certain details matter, but I've just never replaced a case before is all and I wanted an informed opinion.
 
I understand you want a new case, but what's wrong with the old one?
What is it you are trying to achieve?
Just want a new look, or do you think the case is causing you heat problems?
Have you dusted out the heat sinks on the CPU and GPU? You'd be surprised how much crap gets in there and once you clear it out the temps soon drop.
Also, if its getting hot, are you experiencing problems, or am I looking too hard into this and you just want a better looking case?
