I am trying to find a case that i like, and will keep my system at a ok temperature, i am getting a Intel quad, and a 8800 gtx,

I like this one, and i might then get a dremel and put more fans in it, but any advice on cases and anythign else i shoudl consider to keep this cool.

Welcome to Tech-Forums!

Looks nice, or you can go with some an Xclio, AeroCool, or Antec 900 if you want huge fans.

go with the NZXT Zero if you can, 8 silent fans make really good airflow

there's the Sunbeam UFO:
Sunbeam UFO Acrylic Cube Case / Clear or Blue UV

It's a clear acrylic case, but it's a cube, and is able to fit more -aside from 5.25" devices.

I'm not sure if this applies for all acrylic cases but I hear you have to assemble them. And I dont recommend the case in your first post as it uses 80mm fans and dont forget to change your PSU. Wire management will be tough in any of these too as EVERYTHING is visible.
