Default Which case?

Well i finally ordered all my computer parts. Im going to buy a case locally since shipping is so expensive up here ( no more HAF ) anywhoo i went to a couple stores today and the selection is limited.

Here are some of the choices i have so far.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER NV 690 NV-690C-KWN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases


which one would be better for an i7 build, with the 120mm cpu cooler, and the gtx295. Just wanna make sure everything will fit into the case i get.

I would get the HAF myself:

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Better airflow, that 295 is a beast for heat.

Yeah i know for sure i wanted a HAF, but is it really worth spending an extra 96.00 in shipping? just to get the HAF?

I think for the extra 15 though, the HAF would be better. :P Between those two though, the 1200 is better, yeah.
