Default Building a new PC, need help on parts...

Hey, guys. So I am going to be entering into building a new PC! I'm not into gaming, but rather audio recording. Here is what I have, and I was wondering if any of you could help me with some of the compatabiliity issues I could face.

So here's the configuration...

Motherboard
Intel Desktop DG965WH

Processor
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz L2 MB Cache

Memory
Kingston 2GB DDR2-SDRAM 667MHz

Hard Drive
Western Digital 250GB 7,200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0 Gb/s

Sound Card
M-AUDIO 9900-40768-00 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface

Optical Drive
SAMSUNG Black 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache E-IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner

Operating System
Windows Vista Ultimate

So what I need now is a case... it doesn't need to look fancy, but I NEED FireWire (IEEE 1394) and a USB port for sure. It would also be cool if it came with a power supply. I'd like to keep this under $150 for the case.

So if you guys could let me know if there's something better I could find, or something that you see is incompatible. Thanks.

Here you go:

Comes with a 550W power supply and the front tools you need.

As far for the hardware compability, it will all work, but I don't think you'll have Vista until at least January 2007.

Here this case is much more plain, and looks very clean.

It is made by Antec and has an Antec 500 Watt PSU, that is a very reliable Unit and you should be fine with it.

It also had USB/Firewire/Min/and Audio ports built in on the front

Hey thanks to both of you. I think this is the case I'll be getting.

and yes I know about Vista, and I thought about going to Windows XP Professional but with Vista being right around the corner, I figured might as well just get Vista.
