The cheaper one.

Also, can't go wrong with a Lian Li K7B or K58

The scout would also be a good choice, a bit cheaper too.
Cooler Master Storm Scout CM-SCOUT - Caja/Torre
The HAF is really good for cable management and installation though.

The scout is a good case. If not that, then I'd go with the HAF
