Default Any CASE suggestions?

I've started purchasing components for my new gaming monster. So far i've got the AMD X2 4800+, 2GIG of OCZ plat. rev 2's, DVD-ROM & DVD burner and Audigy 2 ZS. I'm ordering the PCP&C turbo-cool 850w SLI next week.

I'm waiting on a MOBO and Video cards. I want to see what the benchmarks of the new r520's are vs. G70's. Also i may go with crossfire instead of SLI. If i go with crossfire, i have to wait until the ATI 300 express chipset MOBO's are available. Hopefully they will support 939 & Dual Core.

BUT - my question is this... The only thing I can't really decide on is a great case. I know it's going to have to be a FULL sized ATX case. I'm not sure if I should go for a really EYE CANDY CASE, or just go for a solid nice looking case. The case also has to be large enough to fit a liquid cooling system

ANY SUGGESTIONS or IDEAS for a great CASE for this system.
The system will probably be in the range of $4,500 - $5,000.
This will also be on display at my new store that i've opened.

so what do you think?

Here's a few samples to look over...

All of these are completely customizable (case color, window color, fans, lighting, whatever), add as much or as little as you want. All have additional pix/views on their respective pages, and there are more models than these to choose from.

Check 'em out:

Be sure to check out the site's home page as well. They sell just about everything for custom cases and modding.
