Just built a gaming PC for a clients son using this case http://www.ebuyer.com/222943-coolermast ... c-942-kkn1 , it is a little over budget but it's a lovely bit of kit. It was nice to build something a bit different for a change rather than boring desktops for businesses :roll:

I have this case and recommend it providing you have reinforced floors and plenty of space, its a bit of a beast but fantastic quality. here is a pic of a full atx board in the case, plenty of room (excuse the poor cable management, im lazy)

If you want a case for a full size ATX board I have a black one that is on castors, been up in the attic for a while but its free to a good home if you want it.

Used to have it as a server and was stuffed full of HDD so I could raid for performance and redunancy
