They are both good cases. Go with whatever one you like the best.

I was never a fan of the P series Antec cases. Back then the 180s were too small for my needs, but the 280 looks like a nice stride in the right direction. Should be rather silent, but so should the Raven if you like it better. My only issue with either is you can't take the drive bays out for better front intake cooling.

so I went to my local retailer and i was asking for the Corsair vengeance case.. well they were sold out. now the sales guy was telling me I should get a full tower case since im going to SLI with my gtx 680. he says the card is HUGE.

is this guy BSing? or would I have trouble with a mid tower?

He just wants to sell you a tower that is too big. The card is the same size as my old 580s and I had 2 in a HAF922. Don't listen to him. You could do SLI680s in a 200r if you wanted to. Plenty of room.
