    I'm looking at a video editing build around an 805D (overclocked to mid-high 3ghz), I quite like the idea of the Antec Sonata II Piano Black, as a case+PSU option.

    Budget for case + PSU I'd look at up to £70, but the build is meant to be a budget vid edit rig for my parents so I can't good to wild.

    I would expect to eb able to fit decent 8/12cm fans for case airflow, and wouldn't be adverse to a bit of panel cutting if needed.

    No shiny light flashing cases either ;-)

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    The sonata II is about your best bet then, you wont get much better than one of the Antec combo's, any of the higher end ones will be fine for you. :)

    Of course its better to buy a case and PSU seperately but if the budge will not allow it then the Antec cases are about the best as they allow future upgrades and are quite sturdy cases in their own right.
