CM Storm Enforcer vs. Corsair Carbide 500R - newbie builder

First time build - teaming with my 15-yr-old son. He thinks the CM Storm Enforcer is a kick-butt looking case. Reviews make it sound like it might be tight/tricky for a first-time build (esp. with the Gigabyte GTX 760 we have planned). Corsair Carbide 500R sounds like a roomy, easy-to-build case (but it ain't good looking - grin).

Am I worrying over nothing? Will we be fine assembling in the CM Storm Enforcer?

    As long as your GPU length is shorter than what the case allows, all of that would fit in there no problem. If he likes it, go for it lol
