Default Which case do you suggest?

Which of these 3 cases would you suggest? I am building a high end system (athlon 64 based) so I need a good PSU:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...133-105&DEPA=1

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-089&depa=0

I have considered this PSU:

I would say go w/ the Thermaltake because it has better cooling capabilities and has alot more that comes w/ it. Also it has side mounted HD bays for easy acces. that is a must now adays cause it makes life alot easier. it also has alot more Mobo compatabilities. The other case just looks cool if your a modder but if you where wouldnt you wanna build your own? Whereas the power supply is concerned i would get this one

because for one the 500 watt series isnt that great and you really dont need that much power. im running 4 HD's (4 200gig SATA) and 2 optical drives plus OC'ing out the bumb and it gives me more than enough power. i really recomend the 430 truepower.

Thanks for the suggestions. I am wondering though, does that 430 truepower put out enough on the 12v rail for a Athlon 64 system to be completely stable? That was my major concern for picking the one I did.

yes it does. Plus you can have 4 HD's and STILL be stable.
