Buying parts for my new gaming rig-- need an opinion on the case I should buy.
I'm stuck deciding between a Corsair Carbide 500R and an NZXT Phantom 410. They're both relatively cheap (in price), and that's a plus and I've read their specs are very similar. Which one would you guys recommend more? Which one is more bang for the buck?
I need some good air flow, (if stock fans are good enough to the point where I only need to get one CPU cooler, a water cooler, and won't have To worry about any further cooling.), and I need good amount of space.
Which case would you guys recommend?

Here are the specs excluding the case:
XFX Pro Core 650W PSU
Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H Motherboard
Intel i5 4670K 3.4ghz Processor
EVGA GTX 780 3GB SC w/ ACX
G.SKILL Ripjaws X 16GB RAM (4x4gb)
Seagate Barracuda 2TB SATA HDD
Corsair Hydro 100i Water cooler
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
ASUS 24X optical drive

Yes, it is hard to decide. From the review, Phantom 410 has a little bit better performances. But for choosing case most likely it is always personal preference.
For me I will pick 500R because I like that case looks old-fashioned.
