Or the Liam Li currently on the shell shocker!

Any ideas?

I'd go with the second Cooler Master case just because it looks cooler (no pun intended).
Or, The Lian Li case. The reason being the have good resale value.

Not really shooting for resale, it'll be mine until something catastrophic happens to it. Over on the "other" forum... they seem pretty die hard about the cm690.

Cm690II. I bought one and can assure you its one of the very finest cases you can buy for under $100...

Is there a chance you could suggest reasons?

I think you can't lose with any of them! Since the question is more of an opinion based one, since all of these cases should have near identical functionality, and I can't see any "omg must have" features that are unique to any of them --- I'll throw my vote down for:
The COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP.

the 690II advanced will be better for the price imo. It will provide better cable management and there are more holes around the mobo so you can route cables behind it. the storm will look nice with the side window though.

Lian LI PC-K58W wins hands down. You just can't beat $55 for a case with awesome airflow, great cable management, a full window, and the best tool-less systems on the market.
The CM 690 II and Storm Scout are both great cases. Nothing wrong with either one, but you really can't beat the price tag on that Lian Li.

I have both the 690 and 690 II and have been eyeing that Lian Li. For the price that is definitely what I would go with. However, the 690 II is still great, especially if you've gotta have a black interior and can't be bothered to paint.

Lian LI PC-K58W by far, a much better case. It's very cheap and has a very high build quality and good cable management. There is no contest here at all.
