I plan on building myself a new PC this next week. I have my motherboard already which is a Asus P4PE. I plan on dropping a P4 2.53 ghz into it. I just don't know what case I should buy for it. I like mid towers and I want front 2.0 USB on it. Also needs to be able to hold a floppy, 2 cd roms, and 2 hard drives ( I might even add a 3rd hard drive later). I'm not into all those fancy looking cases, just a simple one is fine with me. Any recommendations on where to get a good case online and which one to get? Thanks!

I built two P4PE systems with the 25.3 GHz CPU - one went in a plain black Antec case - will hold 2 floppies, 3 HDDs, and 4 5.25" devices. There are USB ports in front. The other was a bit fancier - a Thermaltake Xaser II - aluminium with red accents. Same device load capability but also adds Firewire and temp gauge to the front. Both have Antex TruePower 430s.

The antec looks nice. Looking for beige I think since all my cd roms are beige. I also don't need the firewire connection since my motherboard doesn't have that. :( If I buy a case with firewire, it'll depress me that I don't have it. ;)

Lian Li aluminum. I know it's kinda fancy, but for 30 more dollars it's a good deal. The aluminum is good for heat and it's light to carry to LAN parties. It's also damn cool.
