Define "not too expensive".

Note: A cheap case that comes with a PSU will have a piece of junk for the PSU. Replace it when you build.

Anyways, perhaps you could start at and have a look at your price range of cases. THeres quite a few styles/prices/quality of cases.

The CoolerMaster Centurion case is the best way to go.

Another suggestion is the Ultra Midtower that comes with a 500W X-Connect Power Supply(that had some bad reviews, I have n oreason why).(This case is 60 dollars at Tiger Direct)

If you want a clean computer dont buy any case that makes the Harddrive bays facing the side of your computer, it makes your wires VERY messy, and it is ugly. *Cough*RaidMax X-1(my case)*cough*

Try going to OCAU some time. Lots of vagueness there.
On average I find that it takes about 3 posts in order to find out what the typical OCAU member really wants.
