Hello guys and gal's, I have a conundrum, so here's my problem:

I am a graphic designer and I recently built a system in a CM Storm Enforcer case. It was a impulse buy at the time but seeing as how I might be working at a design firm where I will have to bring my own PC and the Storm does not give off a professional vibe, I have been looking into cube cases( Corsair Air 540/ CM XB) and the Bitfenix Prodigy and Phenom cases. I currently have a Asus ATX board so I am aware that for the Prodigy cases I would need either a m-ITX or mATX mobo and that would be okay. I'm just weighing my options and am open to others. It needs to look somewhat profesional and not be huge. Preferably cube. Here are my components:

i5 4670K w/ Corsair H80i Cooler |
Asus Z-87K ATX |
Kingston 120GB SSD (OS) w/
500GB Seagate Barricuda |
Asus NVIDIA GTX 770 DC2 OC 2GB |
16GB Corsair Vengeance LP (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600MHZ |
Corsair CX600M ATX 12V 140MM |

I realize I am new to this site but I would appreciate any input. Thanks

Putting the last part of my message here:

If you want a case with a window to look somewhat professional, do a good job with cable management. I'm really interested in the Air 540, may pick one up myself...

Can't figure out why my url links are so messed up
