Is the 800D in budget, or the HAF 932 (bit ugly imo) both a great watercooling cases.

the 800D is great for WC but i don't think it will be good for air i might watercool when IB gets released, the HAF series is ugly i agree with you on this and i feel that their build quality is a bit cheap too

sorry for bad english

Have you looked into the CM 690II advanced? It can hold 2 240mm rads internally and is a great case.

You could get a 650D and mount a 200mm rad in the front and a 240mm rad in the top. Stock cooling isn't that great but if you get better fans it is good. It has a side window too.

Well the FT02 would be a little strict for watercooling. Little room in the bottom for a rad. As for the Lian li pc a70 I haven't really have a thought on it. And the a77f...very expensive. lol I would just get a 800D at that range, but that is if you are watercooling for sure.
