Need help picking a case

I am building a new PC in the very near future and would like a little help picking a case.

Here are the basic requirements:
1. Absolutely no taller than 20 inches - slightly smaller would be even better.
2. Excellent ventilation/fans
3. Ports on the front (not top) - including a firewire port if possible
4. Large enough to hold the next generation of video cards without removing hard drive cages or making other modifications.
5. Room for a Xigmatek or other high/quality CPU cooler.
6. Most of the case will be hidden from public view, so clear side panels, lights, etc are not important at all.
7. Budget = $100 or so. Obviously cheaper is fine as long the quality is good.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Check out the Antec 300. I've read good reviews of it and it seems to fit your requirements.
  2. Thanks for the quick responses. Both of those look like good options.
