I'm looking for something more outstanding , like HAF X. I have decent case right now , but it's like every other case under ~150$ at my country - pretty basic looks , design and features.

I am now going to sleep , but will check other suggestions as well. So far I think I will get HAF X , but first will look at Phantom case [ after few days ] , a small chance but might change my mind then.

Okay didn't really know that.
Well, if you can contact Little Devil he has a bad to the bone full tower case or look at Case Lab's M8 case.
We'll use your 500 dollar budget no case is worth more than that....
Check into those.
If you want something outstanding and really stands out I suggest those you can make it a one of a kind creation.
Everything has been done with all said cases..been modded to hell and back!!
After you check those cases out and if you still leaning towards the HAF X, then might as well get it.
Good Luck

If you want excellent air-flow, a huge interior, and don't mind the rather aggressive looks the HAF-X is likely the way to go (it was for me, anyway).

I have an Antec Twelve Hundred V3. Great case and has good cable management. Including my cpu and psu fan it has 10 fans total. 3 front intake, 1 side intake, another intake inside blowing towards the motherboard from the hard drive bay area, 2 back exhaust and 1 huge 200mm top exhaust. It has good looks too. If I didn't have this case I would of chosen the Haf-X instead. So I would choose haf-x or the antec 1200.

haf x is great, but i recently chose the haf 932 because it has better water cooling support

800d is nice but too expensive imo (and has poor airflow according to what i've heard)

in win dragon rider is one i discovered today that looks pretty sick!

nzxt phantom is also very nice

imo don't spend 500 on a case, if you really wanna go all out on the case, i say use that huge budget to build one yourself or find someone who is willing to do it for you...

Go here
Mountainmods.com

Now choose a case and pick the parts to your hearts desire.

Also they have an option of custom building a case for you. Talk to rep, possibly give them some design specs, and they will send you a price quote.
For such a budget you should really look to higher quality cases compared a Haf X, such as with mountainmods or Case labs.
If you have an acrylic appeal there is always DangerDen.

Also look to the Lian Li cases, as well as silverstone. If you want some flash look to the Silverstone Raven.

If you want a gamer appeal look at the Thermaltake. There are two price levels:

Level 10 GT (less features and different purpose) : $270

Original Level 10 : $800

Do not mark off corsair as an option either, if the 800D is too simplified, they have other cases.

Also don't forget OCNs own Caselabs.

People saying don't spend so much on cases, don't obviously own or cannot afford such cases.

These level of cases can cater to what ever need you may have, from looks and elegance to performance and customization.
