if i were u i would get a acrylic case. there mad cool. i think if u get a mid tower cooling is pretty much the same because with large amount of fans the cold air reaches the hot locations faster and doesnt loose its cold temp for traveling so far to the warm area.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I am going to go with an all-metal case when I do get one. Nothing too gaudy or flashy, just a classy-looking front with maybe an LED here or there.

I'll keep browsing sites for one that fits the bill, I won't be buying for a few weeks anyway.

The Antec P180 Case is pretty awesome...it has so many installation points for fans.

Acutally, not all case-included PSUs are that bad...my Aspire 500w PSU that came with my Aspire X-Superalien is nice...and is pretty good.

sureley the less space inside the less air you have to cool?

No, that reasoning isn't quite right. There's still the same amount of heat generated no matter what size the case. With a bigger case, the heat has more room to spread out into more air, and with a smaller case, the heat stays in a smaller amount of air. So basically it's not about how much air you have to cool but how much heat you have to remove.
