Default Case choosing with a twist

I really cant make my mind up over a case i was going with an antec 900 but it has drawbacks that put me off.
Im either after a site that that shows cases by features ie i tell the site what im after in a case and it will show me all available options
Or i post what im after here and you lovely bunch can hopefully point me out a case that can satisfy all my needs

tooless design: would be good if a case had this as it would save me alot of hassle when im swapping in and out parts.

water cooling preparation: ie pre drilled tubing holes etc also room in the case to include a water cooling kit, something i want in a case as i dont wanna drill and cut and mess a new case about to have water cooling.

Space: Would like a big case with plently of room mainly for the water cooling reason and for the expansion reasons.

no door: apparently its like Marmite while i love marmite i hate front doors on cases, if a case has this i wont be interested unless it includes everything else im after.

removable mobo tray: While i can see this being handy im hardly going to be gutted if a case doesnt have it.

led control: something handy i saw on 1 case which i can no longer find, as with the removable mobo tray nice but not needed.

looks: be nice if it looks good, prefer black cases with side windows.

price: would be good if the case cost less than my entire build lol

dust filters: something my current case lacks and i suffer from greatly and 1 of the main reasons why i got put off the antec 900 lack of dust filters.

Now that i made your eyes bleed from the block of text i hope someone has a case in mind that i havent come across yet.
Been thro loads of case reviews and while everyone has a few nice features i like, none of them get most of the features i want.

thanks for any replies and hope i dont come across as being lazy, just killed my eyes reading thro reviews all day

I can't believe you just recommended that.. that has got to be the ugliest things my eyes have ever seen. (Luckily I don't have a mirror)

Newegg.com - LIAN LI PC-P80 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

I like that case.. looks pretty awesome.
