I need a case to put this build in.

So, I've finally started buying the components for my computer, but I can't decide on a case to put it all in. Here is the parts list:

The processor is just a placeholder; I'm going to wait and get the devil's canyon when it comes out, and I also plan to sli in the future, so the case should also two gpus. I plan to take this back and forth from my house to my dorm room, so I'd also like if it weren't too massive (mid size is probably good), and a durable metal construction would be a bonus too so it doesn't get bashed up during transport. Good airflow and cable management are also important, but it seems like most cases have that covered, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. I know that I have a lot of requirements, which is why I'm having so much trouble finding a suitable case. Hopefully somebody knows of a good case that suits my needs. Thanks in advance!

Checkout the corsair 450D, or the CM storm scout 2 since it has a handle

Hmmm, how would a Fractal Design R4 do? You can get it with and without the window.

Thanks a lot! The 450D is compact, yet it can still fit my big radiator and it looks like it has great airflow. Plus I love Corsair (I have their K70 keyboard, which is by far the best keyboard I've ever used, and it's extremely well designed).

To you other two guys, thanks for the responses, but it doesn't look like that case can fit a 280mm radiator. And that raidr express is freaking expensive! I think I'll stick to the Sandisk; it's fast enough for me.

Why not use a dualcore for the time being? LIke the i3 4130 or 4150,this is imo a better temporary solution.At least pricewise.

It's coming out in June. I can wait than long, and that's about when I should have enough money anyway. By placeholder I don't mean I'm going to buy it and replace it later, It's just so I can see a fairly accurate price on the partpicker.
