Get the Coolermaster centurion. If you want, there's a different model with a side window... Add some cold cathodes, WHAM BAM: Flashy.

It also has great airflow, and is from a well known & respected company. And if you do get it, buy some after market Sunon case fans.

I bought this one a few weeks back. Tool-less pci, 3.5, and 5.25 slots. 2 big 120 fans, one smaller side intake fan. Clear side window without any LED's....

I have the centurion 5 case and it is decent. I did a few mods to mine like put a fan on the top, and put two big fans on the left side (cut holes in the clear plexiglass). If you are planning on getting one of the new video cards (8800GTX) I would make sure it is going to fit. I have a 7800GTX and it is getting tight. I am not sure a 8800GTX will fit.
