    I was also thinking of the Aluminium one from Coolermaster in Black, if you go for this be saw to let us know what you think.

    I also found this one , which is along the same lines and looks bloody nice in the pics.

    I've been building our office PCs around the Coolerwaster Wavemaster (silver version), and they are EXCELLENT. I think the Cavalier is the budget end of the range, so you probably get some compromises on materials (part steel I think rather than solid aluminium, so if your budget allows I'd go for the Wavemaster every time.

    The build quality and overall finish is superb. You've got tool-free access to the side panels and removeable motherboard tray. The top hatch hides USB, headphone and firewire ports, but can be replaced by a fan (they include a fan grille and fan bracket).

    Having seen other Aluminium cases (such as Lian-Li) Coolermaster are still head and shoulders above the rivals.

    Only complaints - The side panels can resonate (common in Aluminium chassis), so you'll need to slap some Acoustipak lining on them if you want silent running. The stock fans are high quality, but again, you may want to replace them if noise is an issue (we've got them running almost totally silently). Lastly, access to the 2 intake fans is a pain, since you need to take out 2 hex headed screws to swing out the baffle

    My advise mate, unless your going to watercool the machine then think THERMALS, if your gonna stuff your rig with the latest and greatest kit then good airflow is essential over good looks, as it happens you CAN have both, try the coolermaster stacker, or the Silverstonetek (I have there Tamjin TJ05-S) range of cases some of which will look brill in your AV rack. The wavemaster is alright but the airflow is rubbish as there aren't the same number of fans pulling air in as there is taking it out. The Thermaltake Tsunami Dream is a good choice too or the Akasa Eclipse 62, take a look at www.custompc.co.uk they are an excellent source of info on custom built and modified PC's and they do good reviews as well, or your could buy there magazine in the UK.

    I forgot to mention that there is a new version of the wavemaster on the horizon so I've read and you can bet it will be a great case as there is a lot of competition out there these days.
