For extreme watercooling: DangerDen, MountainMods, or PC CaseLabs. If you want something that has a good look to it but is still great for watercooling then you could look at the Corsair 800D or the Silverstone TJ07/TJ11. The HAF X has a great cooling design but I just find it ugly.

Just make sure that you get something you like the look of. That's pretty important for a case.

TJ07 all the way. You can fit so many rads in there with modding that it's hard to believe.

The "best" is far too subjective. What are your requirements? Do you plan to watercool? Silence important? Tri-SLI? Need more than one PSU? Going with an SR-2? Etc. Your budget is okay. Not "epic", but you should find something decent within that range. Your search requires more criteria though.

No water cooling,maybe in future ,but not now.Going to use 2x NGTX 580 MSI Lightning Xtreme.Dont care about silience.I care only about performance.Most of pc usage 'll be gaming.Going use 1 ,1000W PSU.Intel i7 2700k CPU(if new comes untill 2012 'll use newer).Asus rampage IV(mobo).Etc.
