What are oyu looking for in a case? Looks, practical, compact, nano, midi or full tower? Are you going to game or mainly surf? Is price an issue?
Not trying to be dificult but I would guess there are almost as many case styles as computer users. I personally like the plain desktop, but they are rather hard to find these days. Other than the Shuttle style.

The chances are your motherboard "form" is ATX.

Keep in mind yhat a "full tower" is very tall and probably not what you want. The "standard" sized tower is a "midtower" which makes up the majority of the aftermarket cases. Unless you plan to watercool the system or install a half a dozen hard drives go with a midtower sized case.

Eg: Antec Solution SLK1650B Black Steel ATX (incorrectly labeled as a "mini tower")

(if it can hold an ATX motherboard then it is a mid tower or larger sized case)
