So hello guys :) 

I'm getting myself a new computer and I'd like some help deciding my case and GPU. On the GPU, I'm between the GTX 670 and the 680, and on the case I'm between the NZXT 410 Phantom and the Coolermaster Cosmos II. Obviously I'd go for the 680 and probably the Cosmos II. Problem is, they're too expensive and I can really only choose one of them. So what'd you guys pick?

The build is:
→ Haswell Core i7-4770K
→ Asus Sabertooth Z87
→ (2x) 8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 1600MHz
→ (2x) 1TB HDD 7200RPM SATA 3.0
→ Geforce GTX 670/680
→ Corsair GS700 (700W PSU)
→ Coolermaster Cosmos II/NZXT 410 Phantom
→ Watercooler Corsair Hydro H60

Neither the 770 or the 760 are on the list and the 780 is too expensive. Any other recommendations?

On the list? Oh, you're ordering from a boutique that will build the computer for you... Well, the GTX 670 is nearly just as fast as the GTX 680. I would go for that, unless they're only $20-30 different.

Uh... yeah, I'm afraid that's the case. You know, after 4 months trying to fix this one I'd rather be on the safe side. Either way, they're like, 200$ apart. (I'm in Brazil, so stuff is almost half tax) So, any thoughts? Should I keep the 670 at this price difference?

Absolutely - the GTX 670 is only 8% slower than the 680.
