Default noob here trying to decide on a case

I'm looking to piece together my first build and trying to pick a case. I've decided on a Thermaltake Armor but there are two on them that look very similar. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between these and which one would be better? They cost just about the same.

Newegg.com - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

Newegg.com - Thermaltake Armor Series VA8003BWS Black Full Tower Case w/ 25CM Fan - Retail

DUDE, you accidentally posted the same link twice.... lol

I've done it before also, just fix it.

That case looks nice btw, there was one on club IT cheaper though.

I am planning to go with this one:

Newegg.com - Thermaltake ArmorPlus(Armor+) VH6000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

Plenty of space, great for wire management, removable mobo tray, good airflow, etc. Is a bit pricey tho
