I need a case that will fit the following, and give enough power, and leave room for more parts later, too:

2 HDs
2 CDs (1 ROM/ 1 RW)
MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR 333mhz
AMD Barton 2500+
1GB DDR
GeForce FX 5600 256MB
Floppy
Video Capture Card
Soundblaster (Don't pay much attention to sound.. couldn't tell you what type)

I don't care about noise... I care only about quality/quantity of PSU, room enough in the case, and price (I just spent $550 on all this stuff).

Any websites where I should buy would be appreciated.

Hoping for a price below $100 or $75!

Thanks!

Look down till you find the two tone color ones.

Here is what you find around the $42 mark with out PSU - they also come with PSU's.

This a blue one for example \/ \/ \/

Ok, thanks for the suggestions, but I went with the Antec Sonata case.

Please, anyone let me know if that's a good case!!

Yes, I saw it today at Best Buy and I like it. I also liked the Antec Lanboy.
