Default Need help choosing a case

I need help deciding on which case. Since I've decided to go with an e2180 I have some money left to spend on a nice case and a nice card.
Lian-Li V Series PC-V2000B / Black / Full Tower Case - FrozenCPU.com
Tagan Aplus Black Pearl Luxury Edition Full Tower - $20 Rebate Until 11/1 - FrozenCPU.com
Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 Aluminum Full Tower Case - Black (GZ-FA1CA) (ASB/ATB) - FrozenCPU.com
I like the sophisticated look of the lian li and tagan, but I also like the look of the Gigabyte

I love that Tagan, saw it in a magazine and its one of the sexiest cases ever... I would pick it up right away if it were a midtower

Yea I've seen that one. I'm thinking about the Tagan case. I heard it was OEM'd from Lian Li, don't know if its true or not. You can definitely see the resemblance though. I figured I have money leftover from not grabbing a quad and instead getting a nice case and an e2180. I'll wait for quad prices to come down.

I prefer the Aurora for the looks but they all are good cases so it's a toss up to which you like the best.
