Default Which Case to Get?

OK here is two cases on which I have my eye on.
What you think?

http://www.nzxt.com/Lexa.php
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146018
One thing is that it have PSU... and I dont need it. Already got one for my build.
This have 4 fans. On on bottom, on side, and one on top and last on back.

4 fans...

No stupid doors

That Lexa doesn't have a PSU. My personal preference is the Lexa, I love the looks and it has gotten great reviews, usually 9/10 at least.

I'd say steer away from integrated PSU's. Buy a solid Thermaltake case and buy a solid Antec PSU.
