I personally like the NZXT Phantom in all of it's colours, red, black and white.

Depending on where you live it'll either be cheaper or more expensive so you'll need to do some shopping around for prices.

Here's links to all three colours (prices are AUSD):

Good cooling, lots of room and a very clean look.

You could also grab this, much cheaper and great cooling, a favourite among many:

Since you can afford it, I wouldn't recommend anything other than a full tower case. The NZXT Phantom is a good one, along with the Cooler Master HAF 932 and Antec 1200 (a bit dated, but still sturdy).

I have the Raven RV02 (NOT the RV02-E), and I love it. It's got great airflow, and Silverstone touched up their design and should be selling the RV03 now. Silverstone has several other case designs that are very highly regarded.

I have always been a fan with the simple and airy Antec 300. I personally have the 300 Illusion which came with 3 120mm fans and a 180mm fan (Blue LED). And that was all for ~$60. The Cable Management in that machine is not the best, it is ok. I also like the Antec Lanboy, but personally have never used it.
