do you have a budget? or any other criteria for selecting a full-tower case?

Here are some common factors in deciding on a case:

color
price
material
any specific brands
size/space limitations
cable management
possibility for liquid cooling
etc

for color, as long as it isn't neon green, like Nvida cases.

price, under $180

material, something strong? not sure.

no specific brands.

I'd like it to be able to have a 12.2 inch graphics card in it.

cable management is that I'd prefer it to have some sort of it, but isn't necessary.

and I would like to be able to have liquid cooling. (h60 or h80)

Thanks.

The HAF X looks nice; I really like how they put the side window on, while still retaining the 200mm fan.

Hmm, where could I put a water cooler in that case?

NZXT Phantom is a great case. Plenty of cable management, space for water cooling, comes in numerous colors. And it is quite large and most importantly, in your price range. The only plastic bits are on the top and the front, but they feel solid and well constructed. Love mine.

They look great, the only thing is that I'm worried that they'll chip in shipping since it's steel; or sometimes I do move around to another house for a week or two and it may get damaged.

+1 for the Phantom

I haven't gotten my new hardware in mine yet but it sure is pretty to look at. Cable management is awesome with good color options (white, black, red, . . . pink).

The white has been popping up on sale for $110 - $120 fairly frequently as of late.

Lots of info on mods/cooling/etc. on Official thread, linky.

The package it comes in is great, no scratches or dents at all. It's very well packed and if you save the box you can use it to move around from house to house. Thats what I do.

Hmm, I'm torn on what case to get. Either the phantom, or HAF X. Though I'm leaning toward the HAF X because I do like the side window, and the fact that it has a fan blowing onto the GPUs'.
