First, concentrate on quality over bling (i.e. "sexy looking case").
We have a list of suggested builds composed of top quality known compatible parts.
Some of the listed cases are pricey, SSD's aren't a good value at this time, aftermarket CPU coolers are not generally required so a more economical case and no SSD or aftermarket GPU cooler will lower the prices considerably.
When you compose a list of components you are considering, make a thread in the "Building" section and we can advise accordingly.
