I'd go with the 900. Spacious and good cooling.

All four cases are good choices. Your components will fit in all of those cases. My personal preference is the CM Centurion 590. I used that case to build several systems for other people. However, if you are a hardcore gamer, then you probably would be better off with the Antec 900. It's quite popular with gamers and gets quite a few recommendations here.

with that many drives I would consider getting a full tower like the antec 1200. It can be hard to get a longer GPU in your case if you have to put a HDD in front of it. With that said of your choices I would go with the Antec 900 or the Antec 900 v2. The antec 900 v2 has intergrated fan controllers which would make it worth the extra dough IMO.
