How is the Lian-Li better exactly? From what I can see, and from what I know about the 650D, the 650D seems much better. It has removable HDD bays for one, and far superior cable management. It also has the features that have already been listed in this thread.

The only advantage the Lian-Li has that I can see is slightly improved airflow, and being all alumium.

I'd personally go for the 650D. I like the modular hard drive options, grommets on the cable routing holes, and black cables. I think there's also more space between the right panel and mobo tray, so you're less likely to get a small bulge if you've go a lot of cables to try to hide.

That is one gaudy looking case.

OP, the 650D looks like it suits your needs much better than either of the Lian-Li cases that have been suggested to you. As long as you don't care about the weight of steel, get the 650D.

As a side note, do you ever get dents in the aluminum of those cases, Lian-Li owners? I know that you probably don't move your cases around much, but would the cases withstand abuse if they ever were to get dropped or anything like that?

Lian Li's are rock solid. IMO Aluminum is better because its easier to cut (I'm a modder) and I just love that brushed aluminum finish.

I can also suggest:
Lian Li 9F
Lian Li 8Fi
Fractal Design Define R3
Fractal Design Arc Midi
Cooler Master 690 II Advanced
Silverstone FT02
Silverstone RV02 (If you can stand the looks)

But hey, 650D is a great case, just not worth $200, I feel that if it was priced at $150, then it will be currently the best "premium" mid tower out there.

If the OP goes to full towers, then these cases are great for $200 and under:
NZXT Phantom
Lian Li A70F
Lian Li A71F
Fractal Design Define XL
Fractal Design Arc XL (not out yet but it has been announced)

Thanks.

Money actually isn't a concern at all, which is why I'm liking the 650D. I also don't anticipate on needing to mod it, I'm going to be using a SA in it.

I'm moving from a full-tower case. (HAF-X)

Then go with the Silverstone FT02. Best case on the market for the last two years. I've owned almost every $100-300 case over the last two years out there, Corsairs, Lian Li, Silverstone, Cooler Master, Antec, etc. I went back to the FT02 because of the modern/conservate look, strong aluminum unibody, clean cable routing, and excellent direct air cooling.

The 650D is $209+shipping and the FT02 sells at Amazon for $240 shipped, this makes the FT02 an easy decision. The 650D is a $150 case at best, I remember MC selling the 700D w/ window side panel for $140 shipped a few months back. Don't overpay for the Corsair the brand and a few rubber grommets, the cooling is average compared to the FT02.

and what if the OP wants to venture into watercooling? the FT02/RV02 is useless in WC.
