Need Help selecting a case for my BUILD

I am undecided on the case.

Not really a fan of the alien looking cases, or the vibrant "look at me and all my lights" either. I like simple and clean but with good ventilation and features that make sense and that I can use. Black or gunmetal preferred. Darker. I like blue lights if there are lights. I havent decided on a case because all that I have seen didnt really stand out as "my case" that I was looking for. Maybe I was overwhelmed with how many there were.
I like more room so Full tower is preferred.

I really cant decide completely on the ram yet either. Deciding to do either 4x4 or 8x2

Here is my build.
I want to make sure everything will fit.
I also need to know if I should get case fans or any other stuff cause its my 1st build.

Go look at caselabs.

You like more room, well, they supply it, and they are THE best cases out there. I was extremely skeptical of whether they'd be worth the money until I bit the bullet and got my Magnum S5 recently. I was freaking blown away; it was like nothing else out there.

You obviously can afford it, so if you want the best out there, it's seriously worth it.

They have enough room to work in easily, they feel GOOD, they're easily mod-ible, and they allow you to quickly build an extremely clean build with near-perfect wire management.

... it's brand new and on the front page of their website. :p 

But anyways, you don't want the S5, as it's a mATX case. You want something like the Merlin SM8 or the Magnum M8 (The first if you're air cooling, the second if you're water cooling.

Here's their website:

I think I wanna stay in the $250 & below range.

Very nice case though.

That's fine; like I said, it's the absolute best out there, but you're going to pay for that.

Consider an NZXT Phantom 820?
