If you want a nice big window this would do. However;

COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case $179.99 and free shipping!!!

I have this case and it has a lot of roon inside for mounting radiators and resivoirs and a pump. The side window has a 200mm fan in it and I felt that since I was doing water cooling I didn't really need it there so I cut it out and replaced the L shaped window with almost a full 480mmx480mm sheet of plexi , now the side pannel is almost all window. Since the case comes with one top fan and there are places for two that is where I put the fan from the side. You can see from the picture on the side of thei post what it looks like.

For lighter cases, the 650D, Raven, and almost any Lian-Li case would be best.
