Default Cases. What ones do you all have? I need help :)

I'm also going to buy a new case guys. I don't really have a budget, but I want something that is good value for money. Good cooling, sturdy, with lots of space. I am a gamer. Can I have your recommendations? What cases do you have? How well have they served you? Cheers guys

Well my mobo will fit as a standard ATX so no probs about fitting. And most cases fit most mobo's so that's not a huge issue. So any recommendations for good cases?

Lets see ATX I think that you have to get an atx case but im not sure Sorry I will check on newegg.com

Edit: If you click this link (http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/Su...?SubCategory=7) It will take you to a site where you can pick from a variety of different ATX desktop cases
Edit2: I like this one! ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811148001)

I hope I have helped a little bit

well are you looking for a flashy case with leds and what not or just a standard case

Edit: If youre looking for a plain case this is the one im building my new comp around
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811119068

120 mm rear fan
80mm front fan
side air duct (im prolly gunna put another fan there though)
tooless drive bays
tooless expansion slots (i believe you can use screws too if you dont feel comfortable with tooless)
the front panel has a mesh filter little thingy goin on
theres no sharp edges
real sturdy

I dont care about leds and stuff. Just one that will last long, strong, sturdy, very good cooling, and space to expand. I'm not to bothered about looks. I'm a gamer and I care about my graphics card and cpu staying cool . Any suggestions?
