That looks like a standard full tower case.

I've seen cases twice that wide, and taller, designed for server use.

I would go with the HAF myself.

If you're going to spend that much money on a case, may as well get a better PSU too.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V &#47; EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

This is a pretty sweet deal right now, same price after rebate as the 650w version, and you can run 4850s in crossfire later on.
