Hey there guys I am looking to build a new rig soon for DX11 games such as Battlefield Bad Company 2.

I'm looking to house my components in a case that's going to last me a long time (and hopefully future builds/upgrades.

I'm looking for a large case, that is going to potentially support Larger motherboards, and the very long cards.

I have narrowed my search down to these few cases, and was wondering if you guys have any opinions on them.

SPEDO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

XASER VI - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CM HAF 932 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAVEN RV 02 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Really stumped between these cases, each of them have their pros and cons. I'd go with the Spedo but I don't think it'll fit the large 12" cards.

The HAF seems a bit small, and the Raven seems a little whack and I was wondering if anyone with the case has it if they could explain their review of it.

Like I said I'm most likely going to get the Xaser VI, but I was wondering what you guys thought about the other choices?

I would either go with the HAF 932 or an Antec 900 case.

Antecs are too small IMO..

Since you're looking at full towers, that should be Antec 1200. I would do either the HAF or Antec as well.

Another reason I was gonna go w/ the xaser is the Remove able mobo tray.

Personally I like the look of the top one (since I know my liking it matters a lot to you :lol:  ). Nice cases, I think you are in the great situation where any choice would be a good one. Enjoy whichever you choose.

Yeah, an Antec 1200 is simply massive. I don't see how it could be considered small by any means. Also, it has extremely good airflow.

I just got the CM HAF, it is a fantastic case. It looks good and it moves a ton of air w/o a great deal of noise. Also, quite spacious.

Not an Antec fan at all...

if you have the money, why not take a look at the aluminum case like lian li or silverstone. As for silverstone, the ft-01, tj-09, tj-07 and tj-10 would all do nicely the job.

a removable mobo tray isnt really needed for the antec 1200 since its so massive
