I have spent most of my money gettng parts for my i7 system.Plus some of those cases are just overpriced IMO.I did decide on the Cooler Master HAF 992 .It has got great reviews .plus it is plenty big enough for all my stuff.It has 3 230mm fan plus a 140mm and everone says it is quiet because the large fans don't have to spin as fast.and it has great cable mangement.You can put the power supply in the top or bottom.I did't want a door on mine because I am always hitting it with my knee,it has the USB, Audio, IEEE 1394.and e-SATA on the front of the case ,where I wanted them.And when they priced it at $149 and offered free shipping ,I decided to get it.It may not be a $250 or $300 Lian-Li ,and thoses cases are nice but to get one that I liked was $289.And the Cooler Master HAF 992 fit the bill for what I was looking for.Everone has thier opinion who has the best case.SilverStone look good too,but the one I was interested in was $230 plus shipping.I think I have changed my mind on a third GTX 280 ,ony a few games that reay show improvement and the two GTX280s are playing it at high enough framerates for me.I seen one that was at 248FPS and I woud get a increase to 335fps.Even in the hardest one Crysis I might see 10 FPS more.which is good for that game ,but I dont pay cycsis any more.And I just game at 1920x1200.
