Default Computer modding ideas?

Well I am going to be building a system with a 7800gt, 165 dual core, 2gb ram and some other stuff. I want to buy a case with the best airflow but with alot of room for mods. I saw someone put a cpu heatsink and fan on there 850xtpe. I said wow and then said I want to do that. I then wanted to just pimp it out and make it, how should i say, VERY DIFFERENT from others. First I need to know of the best case in your opinions and what to do to em!

Are you looking for a case with a window, or room for some cathods or just a funky color? Do you have anything in mind, or just everything and anything to make it different?

if you want to go oldschool just get like an old HP or compaq case and pimp the crap out of it by hand. for airflow i'd look at the **** expensive zalman cases or TT. i have a soprano and the airflow in that is pretty good.
