Default Case

I'm ordering my computer stuff tomorrow, and am a little undecided on the case. I want one that is quiet, preferably black(at least no beige/white), includes a power supply and fans, and lastly is on newegg. I don't want to spend over a $100 on it. I'm kind of leaning towards an Antec Sonata case. If anyone has any recommendations please tell me.

that fan is in one messed up place (side fan)

why would you want it blowin on the vid card instead of the CPU?

The X-dreamer II which i have has the side fan right over the cpu fan.

I'm going with the antec sonata, all great reviews on newegg and lots of features. PS is decent 380 watts. The side locking door and front panel is nice. The quietness and rear single fan with rubber or gel fillnigs for screws is cool too...so much nice stuff in that case man go for it.
