Now, one thing i've really been going back and forth to myself about is the case. I've been suggested many good cases (with fans e.t.c.) but none of them that I really liked and by like I mean 'look cool'. I've found some cases my self that are very appealing to me but I don't know if they're as "good" as the one suggested to me the "antec three thousand". I want to keep it at that price limit and the same "goodness" as the antec but I just want to make it look more appealing. Here are some suggestions that I don't know retain the same "goodness" as the antec: NZXT Tempest 210. NZXT Source 210 Elite. If you have some suggestions please feel free to run them by me! :) thanks!

I'm a complete sucker for Fractal Design cases. I have the Define R4 ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcadefr4bl ) myself, but that's a bit over budget. Have you had a look at the Core 3000? ( http://pcpartpicker.com/part/fractal-design-case-fdcacore3000usb3bl ) It should be as well built, but doesn't have the noise insulating properties of the R4.
