Are you looking for more of a proffesional look, or more of a gamer/mod look?

Not sure what your price range is, but any case from thermaltake should suit your needs, check it out.

Well i just got this case and am very pleased with it. Comes with 6 case fans, and keeps my AMD 64 3200+ at 39 C idle, with a thermal pad.
