Default New Case

What's a good case? I'm willing to spend up to $200, and would like good air flow. Preferably that it has 3 fans. I'm looking for one because I recently found out that the Lian-Li case I was looking at, will not work with the motherboard I was looking at because Asus HeatPipe cooled chipset motherboards need the chipset below the heatsink to cool properly. And the Lian-Li case uses an inverted motherboard. Help would be appreciated.

Motherboard: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939
Case: Lian Li PC-V1000BPlus II

And this is not a final build.

Hmm, that Aurora does look good. But I'm just curious, is the X-Navigator I linked any good (besides the PSU)?
