Default Help me pick out a case!

So Im building a new PC, and Ive got it parted out, but have nowhere to put it. I need a case! So gimmie your recommendations! If you had $200 to spend on a case, what would you get? Any links would be appreciated but all I really need is the case manufaturer and name.

Yep, I have the Thermaltake Xaser III V2000+ Aluminium Super Tower, it was 'interesting' to build, but runs very cool. I would also recomend the 480 watt Purepower silent PSU from Thermaltake.

Heh...

Thanks for the suggestion everyone. Although I agree that the Xaser series is probably one of the best cases on the market, I dont want anything gawdy. No windows, no LED fans, etc etc.

So I think Ive decided on a case by Kingwin. Its all aluminum, has a removable mobo tray, 3 stock fans (ill up that to 4 or 5). And all for under $100.

So my PC will be built here within the next week or so.

edit- Duh, heres the case.

That's a nice case, for the look you are after. Some cool features too.

These cases are nice, clean lines as well http://www.skyhawkusa.com/matrix_case.htm
