IMO, gamer cases with clear sides (and those with led fans) are gaudy and look tacky after a while, and require too much little getting all your cabling nice and neat. LED lights get distracting, especially if this in going in a bedroom where you sleep or living room.

Antec makes some very nice and quiet cases that look profesisonal. The P182 and P183 are especially nice, though a bit pricey. Completely worth it. Don't go cheap with a $50 case.

And avoid PSU/case bundles. The PSUs are almost all worthless.

That is also a great case, but is microATX, so you have to be careful picking a motherboard and graphic cards that will fit.

=\ well I picked a micro atx motherboard so I have no problems, and does a ATI Radeon 4850 fit in a micro atx?

I have no clue. The main concern is simply length of the card, so you can probably look at the reviews on the case to find somebody who names their specific make and model and their card and find the length of it and compare to the specific 4850 you purchase.

In my ATX case, my 4850 is almost touching one of my hard drives, but again, it depends on the exact case.
