Look for server cases (Full ATX) in the trash! That's where I got mine (with an expensive socket A server mobo). And Benheck has the same case, so it just makes it that much better/cooler.

the antec 1200 is a VERY well built case, its different from a lot of cases and built way better than most. Id take it over the CM 690 any day but than again the 1200 is worth more and the looks are personal preferences.

Though i defiently think you should look into getting the 1200, its an amazing case.

hey mojo, so i got the cm 690 and i am not dissapointed.... my stuff is cool, running on 2 fans only (the third, i still have to connect). and it looks nice - i did not want the bright lights, i like my computer looking low key and all - and its in my bedroom.
of course, my debate was between the antec 900 and the cm 690. but out of the ones you listed, i recommend the cm690.
good luck with what you choose.
