Here's what I like:

Lian Li PC-60APLUSII Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112069

I know the case is plain looking, but the cooling properties and construction is outstanding.

I personally like this one.

I am not sure if it is durable and will hold everything fine, but it is good as far as appeal.

Lian Li's like trdcorrola said are very good. Thats what I would suggest. The case you mentioned is also a pretty good case. Antec also makes some good cases.

Aren't the fans hogging a lot of a space?

I was looking at this picture and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Showim...+Case+-+Retail

It seems like it takes up a ton of space. First case I've ever seen like that.

The PCI slot fans won't obstruct it because it's almost flushed with the side panel. It's got a removable motherboard tray which I really like and that CPU cooler (I think) is an attachment that can be taken off if you do plan on using aftermarket cooler. It would have to be the removable type or Lian Li would have a poorly design case that wasn't compatible with aftermarket coolers.

This was my first choice but I found an Antex P-160 for $89 so I got it. Just noticed a couple days ago the left from foot pad ia 1/8" higher than the others, guess thats why it was on sale. Lots of room in it for an easy installation and with the optional front 120mm fan, cooling is excellent.

Yeah, I need something with a lot of room. I was thinking about maybe this one even though I'm keeping the Lian-Li in mind.

Now that case will give you plenty of room. It's a full tower setup and it's huge. Well, mainly tall. Wow, 3x120mm fans in there. That's a good case.
