Requirements would be to fit my 7970 and a CM 212+.
what is the primary motivation for the move?
size wise, SG09 will have the best size to power ratio of the 3 very good cases you have selected. personally i would prefer the TJ08-E, but that is strictly a personal preference. I like the airflow design of the TJ08-E best since the airflow pattern is linear and straight forward. the SG09's airflow design seems chaotic with airflow taking turns going from intake to exhaust. but as far as raw performance, the SG09 will offer the maximum cooling due to the ability to install additional fans for GPU cooling.
as far as looks, i also prefer the more elegant styling of the TJ08-E over the SG09's plasticy look. so do you prefer performance over vanity?
as far as the arc mini, it's a fine case for its price, but out matched by the more expensive silverstone cases.
