The Cooler Master HAF XB is a good option.
Really nice case. Good airflow (HAF stands for "High Air-Flow after all) and very solid construction.
It's full ATX with 7 expansion slots and still fairly compact. Doesn't hurt that you can get it for something like $100,- either smile.gif

Here is mine:


And in environment for size comparison:

IF you can wait, you can go for the new Corsair Air 540, its not steel but corsair is known for fantastic quality. It was released at CES but cant remember the release date.

i have looked at this case and it only has dust filtering in the front were the two 120 mm fans are is it not better if you had it every where?

Cases like this are designed for positive air pressure. I have 2 x 140mm. fans as intake in the front, and 1 x 120mm. as exhaust in the back. That means that the vented sides and back, are used as passive exhaust. If set up right, dust has a hard time getting in there and a even harder time settling.

And the XB has something that none of the other suggested cases have. A horizontal motherboard tray. In my book this is a must for a cube case. It makes it easier to build in and it puts less strain on the components when using heavy graphics cards and coolers.
