Default help picking out a case

I am torn between some cases. I'd like your opinion. I'm getting a 8800 GTX, 2 hard drives, 3 ROM drives maybe a forth down the road, floppy and card reader. I like space, I hate cramming. I want to get a decent case for cooling but don't want to waste money in this area. Oh yeah, it's gotta look pretty cool too.

My puter:
CPU - INTEL Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz
MEM - 4 GB (1BGX4) G.SKILL PC2 6400
HD - 2 SAMSUNG 500GB 7200 RPM
OS - Windows Vista 64Bit

I'd go with the Aurora, Hand's down. I love mine! I went with the different model though, With the I/O port's on the front rather then the side. Really a great case! Ton's of room!

The TT case look's nice, With alot of room, But I didn't like the idea of only one 120 MM out-take fan.. The 80 MM fan on the hard drive's will be blocked 60 - 90% so it wont help much, An with the psu on it's side, That fan wont help much either. But still a nice case.

The Aurora is a really nice case for the price, I would go with it unless you don't like the look. I think it looks pretty sick.
