You'd be cutting it close.
The Mesh does extend pretty far down however, so you could likely fit a few 120mm fans.

EDIT: It's not black, but it has the sexiest side panel I've ever seen on a stock case.

Should fit the bill perfectly. I can vouch for it's air cooling efficiency.

That Newegg link is for the Newegg Canada site.
The op is listed as being in the US, so:

Here is the same link for the US site, only $19.99 shipping:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811139007

So the Canadian Newegg site wants $51.04 for shipping that case to Canada
That reminds me of an old expression: Highway Robbery!

If I can bump my budget up to $250 (which I might be able to do), what can that get me? So far it looks like the FT02 would be my best bet. On a side note, I'm adding a second 6870 soon if that makes any difference

Not sure if this applies to our Canadian friend though.

No arc midi? Imo, it's one of, if not the, best mid tower case for your money.

I can buy the Corsair 600t for $125 CAD. Don't ask how, I'm secretly a spy.

Ok fine. http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=033444

but the deal ends in 2 days. Should I pull the trigger (keeping in mind that I want to AIR COOL, not water cool)?

Ok its official. I've been offered a job for the rest of the summer so now I have enough money to buy basically whatever case I want. What is the BEST midtower case for air cooling? I have never liquid cooled, but is there a novice liquid setup + a liquid cooling focused case that would suit my needs as well?

I didn't realize you were in Canada!
Well, there's NCIX as well, sometimes they have some good sales on cases.

Thing is, you have to look at form vs function. The HAF series of cases from Coolermaster offer some of the best air cooling and also water cooling options, but you have to be happy with their styling.
The Corsair cases have great styling, but frankly they aren't the best for air cooling in their stock configuration:

And then there is the cost, if you really want something with class, you can look at the Silverstone Temjin series of cases, but be sitting down when you see the prices
