You all have been Extremely helpful and I very much appreciate all the idea's you've given me. As far as what in particular I'm looking for, when i said "step up" I meant like 65-85 dollars in comparison to the 50-ish the Antec 300 goes for. I'm seeing a lot of great cases here and I'm loving the look of the CM690 and maybe I'll spend the extra couple of dollars for it. Although I'm a little concerned about the two fan openings on the left side of the case. I have two fans I could potentially put in there, but if I didn't wouldn't it be hard to maintain a positive pressure in the case? Basically I'm looking for a case with plenty of room for my 2 560 ti's and a zalman cnps 9900nt, which shouldn't be hard. Something Roomy without moving up to a full. Not to mention easy cable management and something I can put my 2 120mm fans in for better airflow. Of course I'm sure I could get everything I wanted if I spent more, so I'm looking for a good "bang for your buck" case.
What you have should easily fit in a 690 II case. The 2 120mm fans you can use to mount one on the bottom of the case in front of the hard drive cage as intake and the other on the side of the hard drive cage like in my photo, The front already has a 140mm blue LED fan in which the panel has an on/off switch for the leds and the top has one 140mm fan in which another can be added, the rear already comes with a 120mm fan. Confused yet? lol! Ask if you are and is no problem as we're here to try to help you.
The 690 II Advanced can fit GPU's close to 11" in length without that side 120mm fan mounted on the side of the hard drive cage like again in my case - your GPU's should be easily shorter than that but for your own sanity (lol!) you should measure them before ordering a case anyway.
Though it has good cable management a non-modular PSU one still has to work to organize them cables behind the motherboard tray - I know as my photo (which is older) has the install of a non-modular PSU and I recently built my brothers computer using a 690 II Advanced Nvidia Edition with a non-modular PSU - it just takes time that's all. I now have a Seasonic X-650 GOLD modular PSU in my 690 II Advanced case and it's "golden"!
