If you want a case that looks stylish, I recommend you take a look at the

there's no getting away from the Corsair Obsidian range, with their well finished but plain looks, they're a major factor, but a case is entirely opinion, I think the HAF's look ugly as hell.. loads of people like them, I think the 600T just doesn't quite look right, but again, it's a popular case.. I love the Xigmatek Elysium, but not many people do (that I know of)

literally, go to a website that stocks a large range of kit (newegg for example) and order the cases by price and select one..
it's all down to you

Cant go wrong with em Fractal R3s. Theres the XL version as well. Sleek and just cool looking. Good price and good build as well.

I agree. Personally the Obsidian series seems a bit too plain (this applies to Fractal Design too) and pricey. I didn't like the original 600T, but the Special Edition... I like it. The HAF cases are admirable for their functionality, but aren't the prettiest. Regarding the Elysium, it's exciting to see more companies like Xigmatek jumping into the enthusiast case scene.

Bottom line, if I needed to buy a case right now, the 600T SE would be it.

I don't have the rep to sell, but if I did I would offer you my NZXT Vulcan case... Is a great case and worked well for my rig up untill I added more hard drives.... drawback to mATX case is that it will only house 2 drives in the HDD bay, and an additional one in the exterior bay

There are a lot of classy cases out there, but it really comes down to how much it matters. Yes, the Corsair cases are amazing, and are very aesthetically pleasing, but the case that you listed is great, and I believe is only 90 bucks. I own the black version and I love it. I only got my 800D because the 690II is not ideal for larger water loops. I don't know the exact length of the card you are putting in it, but I had enough room with my 6950 to add a fan at the end of it to push more air down the video card. Check out CoolerMasters site for all the possibilities for the case. I don't think you'd regret the purchase.

I've got a 690II and a 600T SE and they are both excellent cases. You really can't beat the 690II for value though...
