I'm not fond of all the fancy looking stuff eather. As long as the case has lots of room, good air flow and easy component access. I used this case for my kids computer. http://www.directron.com/al03bk.html
Toms hardware guide gave it a 7 out of 10. Might not be what your looking for, but I just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents.

I think the lian li is sweet looking as it comes. The new atx layout and the dual 12's for airflow are great for a cool running system.

I got a Xaser III Super Tower its pretty cool and pretty easy to set up (i hadtrouble though). As u said ur building a gaming pc so im assuming that ur gona go to lan parties and such. if this is the case DONT GET a Xaser III Super Tower because simply it weights a TON and becuase of its shape its hard to grab it which makes it even harder to move. This thing is bulletproof

the manual sucks too

other than that its a good case, but i wouldn't buy it again
