That's a dated style that wound up weighing a ton and didn't have great airflow characteristics unless you pulled out half the inards.
It also doesn't support longer graphics cards unless you remove the middle drive rack.
1200 is meh. I think it's an ugly looking case that doesn't offer much besides good air flow.
That NZXT case is just another rubbish, plastic faced case that have been around for years.
Now, the Haf is a great case and has a lot of great features.
I use, and am a big fan of the Gigabyte Aurora series of cases.
Pick something you like, that is functional and has room for the things you want to put in it.
