At one time, I researched such a build. As I recall, you should have no problems with case #1.
The case I liked best was the lian li V351. It can handle cards up to 285mm which is 11". The cooling is better with two 120mm intake fans. It is aluminum which reduces weight.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112222
Another similar case you might research is the silverstone sugo cases.
