dont trust the power supplies that come with cases
Front USB and audio is a must. nearly all cases have this.

120mm fans, you want at least one in the case preferably two front and rear.
A removable motherboard tray is a nice thing to have.
More than two bays for your CD and DVD drives, and at least one external bays for your floppy disk or card reader.
Then you want a good sensible 3.5 internal bay arrangement for your hard drives, im a big fan of the way antec do it with the rack sitting across the front saving space and letting air get in about the drives. Removable drive trays are great things to have.
You want a case that looks good but nothing to outlandish as its something you have to live with.
And you want one from a good brand as a good case is an investment and its one of the few parts in the computer that doesnt go out of date within six months, and you can always hack yourself an extra fan port in the side.
Little things like a case lock are nice.
I personally like Antec cases because of the superior build quality and good common sense features, and the fact that they often include amazing quality PSUs in their cases which cost more than the case sometimes and you are basically getting them for free.

I havent seen one with all the features or another case that weighs as little. Maybe one of the coolermaster centurions like the 530 or 531. You might look on the antec website but i dont think they will have a normal aluminium side for it generally people want to replace those with the window.
