I highly recommend you go with the Coolermaster HAF X if you can afford it. It is a beautiful case with plenty of cooling and space.

I love the HAF's they are great.

This isn't really the best suggestion but Corsair has made the best idea I have ever seen for a case. Not the best looking case but the idea inside on the mobo panel is awesome. You can just pop the rubber grommet's out and use them for cable management. It is also highly expensive. Just a suggestion but I would go with a Cooler Master HAF.

HAF 932 from Newegg. It's on sale for $109! I picked up one myself I just don't understand why the red version is $109 and the blue is $160.

HAF makes awesome cases! would never buy a HAF X because its too big for my needs but if you can afford it go for it, my 922 serves me well and has descent cable managements. overall the cooling in these cases are unbeatable

Newegg has all of the HAF cases on sale, I think. 932 is $109, 912 is $50, and IDK how much the 922 and 942 are. I think the 942 is somewhere around $160 (like the 932 blue ???)

i love my HAF X, but its a big freaking case, its literally 2 feet tall and weighs i think like 30 pounds empty, my entire computer weighs about 70-75 pounds easy. so if you are going to be moving your computer EVER, i wouldnt suggest this case.

we would need to know what you put in your computer so we know what size case you need to house all your new hardware.

While you may not need a HAF 932, it's cheap and it sure looks cool. Come to think of it, NewEgg has a Cyber Monday sale on the Storm Sniper for $90 so that'd be a better deal.
@sean: Uhh the HAF X must weigh more than 30 lbs because the HAF 932 weighs that much
