So I'm waiting for the new Intel CPUs to build a new computer.

Apart from the CPU and motherboard, i would go as follow :
- PSU : Corsair CX600M
- GPU : Gigabyte 7870 (with update to Crossfire in a year or two)
I plan to get an equivalent to the i5-3470 or 3450k, but do not plan to overclock at all.

Problem is : I have no idea what case to go for. I plan to keep the case for a long time (future upgrades and builds), so I don't mind putting up to 100/120$ on the case. For the moment I was thinking about Corsair Carbide 500r, but was wondering if it's overkill.

I would like suggestions and feel free to comment on the hardware i plan to get.

Note : I live in Canada and sorry for my mediocre English.
Thank you,
Francois B.

Cases very much come down to personal opinion, and how you want it to look. After that it pretty much comes down to, do you want a bunch of fans, or do you want a quite case? As for me, I don't care, I buy whats cheap, but, if you do want to spend good money on a case the two I really like are, the Antec p280, Rosewill Thor V2, the Corsair Obsidian, and the Carbide that you mentioned. People really like the Cooler Master HAF X too.
