CHEERS.
What features in particular are you looking for and what is your budget? If you list all of the features you require it would be easier for us to recommend particular cases otherwise you will get answers like "Lian-Li, Corsair, Silverstone", which are all great manu's but seeing that your old case was Azza I am guessing Lian-Li and Silverstone don't quite fit your style/price point.

I would have to say Corsair and Fractal Design are the top 2 for you to consider. Excellent price point for the features and quality and the range of aesthetics you should find at least one in there that suits you.

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 is a great case, goes on sale often and comes with a tonne of features. I just replaced my old case with one of these and I am very happy.

I have this case..Corsair Carbide AIR 540 Review Best damn case I've had. Super cooling options with air or liquid cooling set ups. Stock fans are almost silent. Take a GOOD look.

If I was buying a standard mid tower case today I would probably get the Antec P280:
Antec Performance One P280 Case at Memory Express

I have seen some crazy good bundle deals on this case that include an Antec PSU at Memory Express.

I decided on a Fractal R4 and I like it. Very solid.

I have that case, I like the outside of the case... They left too little room in the top for a push pull rad. The front with all those hard drive bays are part of the support structure so you are gutting the front bottom if you want to do anything other then 3.5 hard drives. There are no SSD slots like in the Corsair R200. Cable management in behind the motherboard is not bad but brands like corsair have at least another .5" of space that make a world of difference. Its a sad because the outside of the case is my style very clean and nothing flashy.
