My smartass response: The cases that look best are those that can't be seen or heard b/c they're in the closet or next room over. Save your $$ and put it into rewiring your house to run component or VGA from the closet to the TV so you free up some valuable floor space.

My value-add response. Beauty is a subjective thing, but I always liked the ahanix cases.

I think the best looking cases are the HFX ones.

mcubed HFX

I have the big one but would go for the mini if I would build one today (didn't exist when I bought the case).
Very expensive for a case but it's dead silent and it looks realy good in the equipment stack.
Well built and solid.

My Zalman HD160XT is a beauty.

It was around $600 w/taxes and s/h.

If money is no object, there is a thread on this forum where they custom-build it for you, check it out. It starts at $645 before any add-ons though.

Good time to buy computers and computer parts: NEVER

I just bought the Antec Fusion a couple of weeks ago and am very happy with it. It's one of the first things that people point out when they see my equipment rack:
