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.

Which PSU would you recommend that is all sleeved and has around 550W?

One of these

Ultra X-Finity 600-Watt ATX Dual 80mm Fan SATA-Ready SLI Ready Black Open Box Power Supply RB-ULT31848 ON at TigerDirect.com

I own one and the Flexforce cables are VERY nice for wire management. That PSU wont break the bank either.

EDIT: If you are going to use that Lian case then you don't need a fully sleeved PSU really but it's always nice to have one. I highly suggest you look on SVC.com and get your cold cathodes, some zip ties and other case mods. get some of those adaptors I showed you to appear right in front of the window.

I believe the SeaSonic is sleeved, but in black.

The Ultra X-Finity is Tier 2 in PSU's while Seasonic is Tier 1 so if you saw one thats a good idea then. I heart my Ultra though and it provides plenty enough amps for me heh.

it is sleeved and if you want good cable management it will be a god send.
Also the alienware cases dont have good air flow i know i have one you have to have watercooling with those because all that cosmetic stuff make them suck.
