I have already done some minor upgrades on my computer for gaming- just a new graphics card and PSU. I do want to get a new processor some day and for that I'd need a new motherboard.. well, I figured I would be better off just building something new.

The major thought on my mind is getting a nice case. The PSU I have for my future computer is an 800W Corsair. I barely fit the thing into my case since it's so long- mainly because it's right across from the DVD drive. It's definitely a nice PSU but I noticed that it makes noise from rattling my little case.

To sum it up:
Basically, I wanted recommendations for any cases that give plenty of room for this PSU or I would at least like to be pointed in the direction of words that mean the case is large. I know what a mini atx case is, but what is a mid-tower? Basically the same size as my Emachines case or bigger?

Thanks for any advice.

Well, I know for sure that every computer cases don't make any noise but the case fans are...
I could recommend you these two cases.

Yes, your PSU will fit and those cases are adequate enough to fulfill your needs =)

Want something really larger? I could recommend these FULL TOWER case!

Thank you very much for the links!

And yeah a lot of money, but still cheaper than the PSU. (regular 200 dollars, on sale for 170) The price is partly from the packaging I expect. I was stunned to find the unit lovingly wrapped in a velvet bag. :)
