Default LAN party case

Big fan of LAN parties here. I was wondering if anyone had any particular favorites when it came to cases for PCs that you lug around often. I'll be building a new gaming rig soon, and I'm looking for something that can take a bit of punishment. The last one I had totally fell apart after I slipped while carrying it.

I'm willing to splurge a bit, and I'm more concerned with it's sturdiness than it's weight, so I'm willing to sacrifice the latter if I have to. I also have quite a bit of hard drives, so six bays would be nice. A handle would also rock, but it's not neccesary

thermaltake probably makes some of the sexiest durable cases out there.

The "Lanboy" might be a good case.
