All ATX cases are built to the same specs really any will due. It is not a good idea to use a case and power supply bundle most cases that come with power supplies are complete junk.

To help us help you tell us what kind of budget you have and what style of case are you looking for.

How are you going to install an FCLGA1366 Socket CPU (i7-930) on an LGA1155 Socket Motherboard (ASUS P67)?

You should be considering an i5-2500K or an i7-2600K LGA1155 Socket processor.

What is the make and model of the graphics card that you will be running in this new system? Will you ever consider running more than one graphics card in CrossFireX or SLI mode? This info is needed determine the correct power supply unit specifications.

Don't buy a case that already has a PSU. Get a good name brand PSU like Antec, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Seasonic.

im pretty shur any good mid-tower case could fill ur needs, and ya a socket 1366 cpu on a socket 1155 not gonna happen heres a good socket 1366 mobo, and a good ps and case:

MSI X58A-GD45 LGA 1366 Intel X58 mobo,

Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel case

Thermaltake TPG-650M Toughpower Grand GOLD 650W 165$, should be good combo, it all depends of ur budget but if u can afford getting a 80+ gold certified ps , is worth it, and case well its up to u and mobo, well the x58 chippy runs great

An Antec 600 would will have plenty of space. I use one currently and am able to fit two 12 inch graphics cards and a Coolermaster V8 cpu cooler with a i7 950 under that. Also make sure that your motherboard and cpu socket match up. Think ahead are you going to to more that one video card or an aftermarket cpu cooler? Never buy a case power supply combo. pick out all of the components of the computer you want to build and then add up all the power intake and then buy a power supply based on that. Also make sure that all the components are compatible.
