Any ATX case should do I think. The prices will vary depending on the store, but they are pretty reasonable.

Check out this site, they have some pretty good cases.
This is the one I want to get for my new PC that I'm working on getting.

That's one sweet puppy, but with the price tag I prefer to buy an Athlon XP2700 and some sweets.

also, with modern boards having most stuff on board, except for wanting a super graphics card, you wont have need for much in the way of pci sockets.....this means you can opt for a midi rather than a tower. not just saving you some dosh but also saving some space.
think about it first. ;D

Basically not just any ATX case will do. They're some really compact ATX cases out there and those don't make sense. It really depends on what you planning to put into it. If you planning to have just the basics:
DVD Drive or CDROM Drive
1 Hard Drive
Then a case with:
(3) 5.25 inch External drive bays
(2) External and (2) Internal 3.5 inch drive
(7) Expansion Slots
(1) Case Fan and a
300Watt Power Supply
If you looking for a performance case to acommodate your mobo with extra IDE controllers allowing you to add 4 more IDE Devices then a case with:
420 - 500 Watt Power Supply which shoudl have at least 6 molex connectors and be Pentium compatible
4 or more CD-ROM Drive bays
2 or more Floppy Drive bays
3 or more Internal HDD bays
7 Expansion Slots
3 - 5 80mm case fans
I personally prefer Lian Li PC Cases since they are the best and made mostly of aluminium.
The pic above is also a Lian Li case (the PC-6070) but i prefer the ones like the pic below (PC-75)
