You could always do some modding and just buy a new PSU case and proper size LED fan, solder the LED fan connection on and then put it in the colored acrylic case of your choice.
Considering the rate in which the need for more power has been increasing, I wouldn't be suprised if we didn't need more than 550 watts in only a few years. That is, of course, unless they find a way to make the newer components less power-hungry, which will probably take quite some time.
