i personally think this is the best case you can get for this price. it is built 10x better then any thermaltake, and has the quality of any lian-li. thing is heavy, but because its built so well... its 109 with no PSU

How about the case in my specs have you heard anything about it? Also maybe one with a side window would be nice. That cost more though does't it?

2 120mm fans and 1 90mm. Plus the fan from a PSU gives you 4. Nice looking case, side window, quiet and cool. Also in silver.

What size tower are you looking for (mid, full, etc.)? And is there any need for portability?

I agree with jester's recommendation of the Centurion 5. Nice, sleek, and compact but not too small. It's also very cheap (in price of course), so you can spend that extra money modding it or other stuff. Here's the version with the side panel window:

Sorry Mistify I forgot to clarify that I am looking for a full and all the suggestions so far have been great. I like the looks of the TT cases that have been posted but has anyone heard of the one in my specs because it looks nice and all but any experiences with ultra cases (Aluminus in particular) because I really like the layout and the big size. Thanks for all the help so far!!!!!

It's a knock off of an Antec case which is rather nice. The door seemed a bit flimsy on both the Antec and the knockoffs I've seen.
Well layed out and an overall very good design.
BTW, Antec is no longer making it ... probably since so many companys copied it!
