Default Help me choose a motherboard and Case

My old system is crapping out on me so it's time to upgrade. I need a AMD motherboard that is AM2 with ddr2. I was looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128321

As for the case I'm open I love good looks but need something that has plenty of ventalation or good fans. Lights on it I don't care would perfer but can do without. While I'm at it guess I should upgrade my PSU so those recommendations would be great also.

Thanks in advance.

As for the PSU, what is the rest of your hardware?

With all the lights of the case could you recommend a non light psu? And hopefully cheaper.

Personally, I'd recommend a Lian-Li case over an Antec. Much better quality, and a few experienced members here can back me up on that.

For a value power supply, I'd recommend a Rosewill, but you don't want LEDs. For the best quality one, get this Silverstone:

If you want to save a few bucks, get this Antec. Not quite as good as the Silverstone, but still a great PSU:
