Default Help Me Choose a Case

Can someone help me find a case for the PC I plan to build. I want it to be good for OCing because I may want to do that eventually so I guess it needs to have good cooling abilities. I want it to be a budget case but of good quality. It doesn't have to be pretty because I want to paint it myself.

Also is it possible to mod a case myself by installing window panels?

Personally I like this one, Soprano, they also carry it in silver, and w/o a window.

I have a Lian-Li PC-V1000 which is very well ventilated, has a seperate HDD compartment for 6 HDD's, and is roomy enough for watercooling or whatever else you want
