Hi guys I am building a gaming rig with a GPU maybe: 7870, 760 or 7950 but the Fractal Design R3 is £60 and R4 for about £75-£80, which one is better value and do they have good airflow and cable management? Thanks.

The R4 is slightly wider, good if you ever want to use massive air coolers such as phantek. The center drive cage can be rotated or removed.

I am just using the stock cooler, is the R4 much better in terms of cable managing?

Thanks!

I haven't seen an R3 but the R4 does have about an inch behind the motherboard for cables etc. and lots of holes for hiding cables.
