I'm surprised it only has the 3 to start with. I'm disappointed. I don't want to mess with it.

I'm thinking this one:

That's a very good choice as well.
Lian Li V1000's, V1200's and V2000's are decent cases, and have decent airflow, but there are a few cases with better, more efficient air flow designs, such as Antec Nine Hundred and the Thermaltake Armor.

Well that one is spacious and has water cooling...pricey though.

Just thought I'd let you know this case is massive, and it has a VERY deep (from side to side) chassis. Its a great case, full tower of course

Wonderful case. I have not met a person that had an armor that didn't love it.

You can get the Gigabyte 3d aurora for around $140 in stores such as micro center. I have one and I water cool with it. It fits my x1900xtx fine, but with barely any room to spare. A larger card probably wouldn't fit unless you cut out part of the HDD bays. The case is much lighter than the armor and it comes with 3 so-so fans, but no blowhole. If I were you, I'd take the one with the grate over the window because when I had aircooling, it allowed my vantec tornado to pull outside air through the grate to cool the processor instead of using ambient case air which was a big plus.

Lian Li pc-65! Excellent case. Excellent cooling, room and quailty is second to none!
I had a X1900AIW in the with the Thermalright HR-03 on it and a Panaflo 120 on top of that. Room in this case has never been as issue. I have the Brushed Aluminum one and it is beautiful.
