    Ok i want a new case and before you go recommending loads of case it has to look good so don't suggest me any No swearing! looking cases and it has to have very good cooling. Has to have:
    - 4/5+ 5.25 external bays
    - 1+ 3.5 external bays
    - 4+ hard disk bays
    - 2+ 120mm fans (front + rear) side/top/bottom ones also if possible
    - 7 pci slots
    - side window if possible or at least holes one side pannel around cpu and graphics card

    These are a few of the cases i like:

    - Coolermaster Mystique 631 Black - £82.19 - (good balance between plain and over the top but has no window)
    - Lian-Li PC-7 PLUS Black Aluminium Midi-Tower Case - £57.52 - (so cheap but very plain)
    - Thermaltake VC3000SWA Armour Jr SuperMidi Tower Silver - £76.32 - (room for up to 5 or so fans but maybe bit over the top)
    - Thermaltake VA7000BWA Shark Aluminium Full Tower Black - £82.19 - (just looks so cool but maybe has bit of a plasticy look)

    IF people have these cases could you please put pics up aswell

    Cheers
    Nick

    With the money left over on the PC7+ you could get the side window and a MF23 for the front, or some cathodes.

    Just off now will expand my opinions when I get back. :)

    Akasa Eclipse 62 is another option.
