Case looks damn nice!
Also, I have a budget case and hate it as well! Not because it's ugly (it is) but because it only has 5 drive bays (who the heck needs 2 3.5" bays nowadays?) but only ONE hard drive bay! Yours is much cooler!

It's Coolmax. I read some reviews, its not too bad. I'll admit, I liked it because of the 14cm fan with the controller. It's damn quiet.
It should work just as good as the big boys.

Its max is 450, but it shows 423 continuous on the PSU itself. Im pretty sure my parts should hold up. Its not going to be OC'd all the time.

personally i dont give a rats *** what my case looks like, as long as everything inside functions good and proper.

if you took a budget case you prolly could of got a 6800gt or whatnot instead.
I've learned that having a clean inside is GOOD because a: air flows better in a clean case (i.e. you will have a cooler pc) b: it's easier to get in and out of when working on it and c: there's much less of a chance of some wandering plug going where it shouldn't and causing a short.

Mine's not as clean as Joe's but it's getting there

Dude, that is tight. nice and clean, it's definetely a sexy sight.

smileygladhands is right. Having a nice clean case, without any cables wandering astray, is a plus. You will not have things obstructing airflow, and the possibility of a stray wire shorting something out is greatly reduced. Now I really want to open my case and clean it too, but there is just soo much in there it is overwhelming. I have hoses going everywhere, wires that are ghetto rigged throughout the case, and wires stretching across the case at their very limit because they were JUST long enough to fit. I have a nice big case, roomy, it's nice. I need to do some SERIOUS computer upgrading. Cosmetics have become quite a things to me when it comes to my computer, so I'm really going to have to dive into it and clean it. And put the side panel on too. I dont think it has been on since I first opened it up to work on it after I put it together. And that was prolly a year or so ago.
