Question Solid Case for a 1050 dollar build?

About to build my first PC around the $1050 price range. The only thing I'm really struggling with is picking out a good case. I was going to go with something like an H510 from NZXT, but the USB-C port would be dead as I don't have a corresponding USB-C port on my motherboard, and the thought of a dead port on my case just makes me shudder lol. I've tried out several cases, does anyone have a recommendation? Would like tempered glass with decent airflow, under $80 or so.

I just started to swap cases from a Corsair Carbide 100R to the NZXT 500H.

NZXT did an excellent job with the case design for building the pc and keeping it extremely clean looking regarding cable management. I'm impressed with the attention to detail. The build quality is very good and for $67.00 tough to beat.

My motherboard doesn't have a USB-C header either. It's easy enough to remedy depending on the mobo, for me this works;
