Antec's new line of desktop cases are nice - one example is the NSK4400, the media PC case I mentioned a while ago, and they have a new one called "Solo" (see: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811129018 )...

They appear to be designed to be quiet, good looking, and reliable. I also think they are more efficient (higher efficiency PS)...
