I've always used Antec cases, in my opinion they're great! They're strong and well made, I love my server case. However, I've had my case for years and what was considered a server case then, is only a mid tower now. It lacks depthness. Look for a full atx, make sure it's well over 20" in depth. Mine's around 18.5, maybe a little more, I had to reposition the HD bays because it would cover part of my mobo and block airflow. I moved it to the bottom of the case where it's cooler. Antec is great, but make sure it's spacious.
