This is the one I have bought for my older setup that broke down on me, here's a Pic link or you can also look at my rig, I have a 15" Blue light in there as well to make things a little brighter. Also with a clear case you have to keep up on the dusting and careful about scratches of the case.

 

Case:

For the light I'd put a piece of electrical tape carefully covering 1\2 of the light facing you so you don't go blind.

 

Cold Cathode Light:

Cheap PSU is crime. The simply explode like lightbulb. Just "bang" and no PSU, and no PC anymore. Better buy some Corsair 650-750W, or some Enermax, Seasonic etc. You can save on some case, save on appearance, but PSU is precious. However, I recommend to buy decent chassis either. Bad airflow is HW killer. Choose strong, solid not flimsy chassis, spacious and with good HDD mounting.

In any case I suggest you to start PC upgrade with HW you will keep for future. PSU, VGA, case and cooling firstly.

 

I apologize for pointless message. Just wanted to insert 2 cents.
