Well most of the wires, are coming from the power supply. You can't buy colored cables for that...unless you sleeved them yourself, but thats a very tedious process.

Newegg.com - LIAN LI PC-V1000BPLUSII W Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Would this case work for everything i plan on buying?

And what cables would you be able to see through the window?

What you see through a case all depends on your motherboard connector placement and how good of a wire management job you can do...it's as simple as that.

With good wire management in that case, you would probably see the SATA cables from the left...and some of the PSU cables coming out, from the bottom.

being able to see a few cables is where ti's at man. It's pretty **** cool to see like two cables and thats it in your window. No cables at all and it looks...boring. This is why you get some cathodes and some UV reactant cables and bam. Or just get colored cables to accent your case and be done with it. Just be sure to get lots of zip ies and remember electrical tape is your friend.

EDIT: Buy a frickin PSU that has cables already sleeved, as well as some colored SATA/IDE cables.

You don't have to even sleeve all of your cables in a case like that. Just add these adaptors on the ends of them and through the case you will only see these colors if your PSU is not sleeved. Making a case look good is just common sense.
