This one is bigger (you said you were thinking about a double wide so im guessing size isnt an option.)

My budget is clearly stated in the OP, I'm not spending $500 on a case.

Lian Li Full tower looks good, except the air flow would be kind of difficult to route. Same with the mid-tower, and both of these are too expensive for me.

Fractal design case I'd really like if it didn't have that flap in the front, and if the inside were all black.

Thanks though We're getting there.

The second one is pretty flashy, but it does look pretty modern. Bit of a departure from what I want, but I appreciate the recommendation.

honestly if you want classy, lian-li is the way to go. plus they are great for modding. add fan holes and dynamat/sound foam to your heart's content. thats what i did. i now have 11 fans in my case lol

The graphite is a little bulky, and the zalman looks weirdly OK. Not the best, but definitely a nice find.

I'm thinking I'm going to want a Lian Li case, but I was really considering this thing because it's tiny and looks nice. Just wondering if I can fit my GPU in there, really.

Fractal Design Arc Midi looks to be a great case.
