Default Need a good case...

I'm starting another build and I need some good case. I need something normal looking, not some Transformer look that u can't figure out what it is I need some space so I hide the wires as much as I can, what would u buy in my place..

Here's what I'm putting in so far that takes most space...
Evga 680i
Evga 8800 GT
OCZ PSU

Well, it kinda depends on what your budget it.

I'm quite fond of my Antec 900, but I don't know if it's too over-the-top for you? Newegg.com - Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Haha, I meant over-the-top as in looks, since you said you didn't want a 'transformers' looking case xD. Didn't know if you thought that one fit into that category or not =P.

because the GameXStream series is known for their power ripples


the 690 and Apollo are both good mid towers

silver stone strider 600w modular Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE SST-ST60F ATX 12V 2.01 & EPS 12V 600W Power Supply 115 - 240V - Retail
and that is way to much to spend on a mid tower.
