Hold on just a second!

Ketsuri - Please list the components you will be installing in the case. Depending on your choice of components there may be a problem with some of the cases that were recommended. One must be careful with case and component dimensions.

Get a Corsair Obsidian 800D, everything fits in that cavernous box.

OK!

Going down the list I see you want a Coolermaster V8 cpu heatsink. It is a 160mm tall tower style heatsink. You will need a case that is at least 204mm (8 inches) wide to accomodate the heatsink.

Next I see two ATI Radeon HD 5870 video cards. Those cards are 280mm (11 inches long. The cards also need a little more space for the power cable connections. Because of drive cages mounted in the front of the case you will need a case that is at least 508mm (20inches) in length from front to back. Longer would be even better.

Looking at your build it appears as if you are a gamer. Looks like you might want a gaming case.

Coolermaster HAF 932 has excellent ventilation, airflow, cooling, and interior space:

The Coolermaster Storm Sniper is another large gaming case that is popular:

The Lian Li / Lancool Dragon Lord is a little smaller but can still accomodate you components:

Well i actually have the HAF 932. I am actually trying to sell it to get a different one im not particularly fond of it. I wanted something with a window good air flow and black all the way through. So i was looking at the Corsair Case it looks nice wonderful design but the question is air flow. Also it might force me to upgrade to water cooling a lot sooner because of the lack of vents and fans.

The Corsair has OK airflow but is great for water cooling.

Here is a good video review if you haven't seen it already:
