nMEDIA has been making a name for themselves making HTPC cases, with their 2000B model being up for review at The Tech Report.  The B in this model name denotes a black finish, there is also an S model if silver is more your thing.  Standing 17″ x 16.4″ x 6.6″ should give you enough room for cooling and components without being so large as to look awkward in a living room entertainment centre and they use drop down panels to hide the two drives.  Drop by TR to see if the inside is as good as the outside.

“A home theater PC needs an attractive enclosure, and nMedia offers a rather affordable one in the HTPC 2000B. Looks aren’t everything, though, so we’ve tested the 2000B to see where it shines and where it fumbles.”
