Question New case help.

Hi guys. I am building a new rig and I am stumped on what case to get. I was looking at a couple. The ones I was looking at were

- CoolerMaster HAF 922 Case: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

- Lian Li Dark Armor K62: Newegg.com - LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

or - Thermaltake V9: Newegg.com - Thermaltake V9 Black Edition ATX Computer Gaming Chassis with Dual Oversized 230mm Ultra-Silent Cooling Fans VJ400G1N2Z Mid Tower

Thanks everyone. If you have any suggestions let us know. Please be wary that I am in Australia, so prices are different and same with the choice of brands.

I would opt for the HAF, its an awesome case for airflow and cable management. Really though, you need to pick something that appeals to you, i have used the V9 and its a cheaply made case, i hate it when the expansions slots cannot be reinstalled so your left which a dust hole if you take the wrong one out. Although you cant go wrong with the HAF you may like the plainer looking cases like me, this might be worth a look

or also the scout
