    You're going to have a little tougher time finding a 5-space, unless you find one on eBay or some other site for used gear that someone had specially made. I'd say go for a 6, so you'll have a little more flexibility if you want to add/remove any gear, and you'll have an easier time finding a case. Next, what level of protection do you want?
    Try looking here to get an idea of the different levels of protection/weight/price/etc.

    Gator makes a 6 space with a built in power strip, and IIRC that leaves 5 open spaces.

    SKB is real popular, I use Road Ready, I like the wood and metal. SKB's are injection molded but they are fine and a little cheaper. Gators are fine too. There are others.
