Choosing a computer case is a design decision.  First, thing, choose what is 
most important for you.  Here are some suggestions (in no particular order):

Style of case
Air flow
physical size of case
type of power supply accommodated
placement of switches
drive bays (number, type and placement)
size and type of motherboard/cpu/cooler accommodated
size and type of video and cooler (if needed) accommodated

The great case could be anything from an Altoids tin for a RaspberryPi (well, 
it won't quite work without some mods, but this is a theoretical discussion 
anyway) to some of the large cases mentioned in some of the responses.  They 
all will work with Debian.
