Default Cases

I'm thinking of building a computer sometime early next year. I'm beginning to buy slower evolving parts first. I'm going to start with a case. Just wondering where I can find the coolest(both in looks and literally) case. Post your favorites.

I have a Thermaltake Xaser case and am very happy with it! There are indeed some cooler looking cases, but the features of this case outweigh the rather mediocre style. This case is almost completely screwless, and all you do is snap your devices such as your hard disk and optical drives into place. It also has 7 fans which is sure to keep your system cool..the only thing better would be water cooling. I would highly recommend this case, although it does carry quite a price tag.

What particular features are you looking for?
All aluminum?
PSU included?
removeable mobo tray?

When building budget systems, I prefer to work with the KingWin KT-424 series...
