Any suggestions? For the record, I'm not a big fan of the haf 912. Only reason I say that is I know it will probably be a popular suggestion :)

"Sexy" is in the eye of the beholder.

So, are you using a mATX or full size ATX motherboard?

Also, what are the specs for the system in question?

Sexiest would be one of those things that are "eye of the beholder" things. Once you get what you need(size, fan capability, drive space, etc) get whatever you think is "sexy". What might be sexy to me (haf 912) may be totally disgusting to you. You are the one that will have to live with it every day, so it should be your choice.

either ATX or mATX is fine. I'm using a mATX board jut because I'm on a budget.

As for specs, 8gb RAM, Powercolor 7850, i5 3330, 500gb Caviar blue hdd, xfx 550w psu, gigabyte mATX B75 motherboard.

Sexy? ... eh.. not so much but it does a great job as a computer case!

This one is sexier though:

It comes in different (trim) colors so you might want to browse around if you don't like the blue trim.

Weird...
My links are just going to the main page too...

Well just look for the Antec 300 for a great case.
And look for the COOLER MASTER Elite 311 RC-311B-BWN1 Blue Steel for the sexier looking one.

Rosewill challenger is a little flimsy. The front panel pieces punch out to easily. If you have kids that like to touch stuff, they will likely pop them in.

HAF 912 is really a good case for the $.
