Default Need good case

I need a case to replace my current one. Its a 1990's vintage Aopen, its small, loud, and doesn't have much in the way of fan mounts and drive bays. I need low cost and fairly decent case. It need to keep all of my parts cool, have some more leg room, and not be an eye sore. it doesn't need to be anything special like a Lian Li, just something more practical.

The Antec 900 and p180 are awesome cases. I picked the Centurion 5, because he wanted a low priced case, and decent. That's what the Centurion 5 is.
