One type is larger than the other. Literally.

I don't recommend Full Towers because most people don't realize the sheer size of them, plus they are pretty impractical to 90% of people building. The only thing you can use one properly for is very large water cooling loops, lots of HDDs, or other things ridiculous like that. They don't exactly offer anything better than mid towers besides size because without better or more fans that offer more CFM airflow can sometimes be worse due to the bigger size.

Only because the cheaper version supports more RAM than 7 HP x64.
