It looks like you are putting a system together on a budget. The case suggestions here are good but some are a bit expensive. The Nmedia HTPC-400BA Media Centre Case is on sale at ncix.com for $100 this week only. You will need to add an MCE receiver and remote to complete it.
I can personally recommend a Silverstone Lascala LC20M-B. It may be overkill for your HTPC since it accommodates a full ATX motherboards and costs about $205.
If you want to upgrade the hard drive, ncix.com also has a couple of 500GB drives on for about $130.
