I currently have a Raidmax Smilodon.

I hate the door on the front, you have to have it open to use any of the USB/audio jacks, which is REALLY annoying.
Also, one of my USB's does not work on the front.

Anyways, I am looking to buy a new case.

I have looked at the Antec 902, i love how it has dust filters behind all of the fans, i find this to be very useful...

My biggest problem with choosing a case is cable management. I want to have a very clean looking case...Would this case allow for me to hide all of the cables, and how easy is it to do this with this case?

My psu btw is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
dont know if I need a different PSU to make this easier to do.

My gfx card is an HD radeon 5770 and I also have an HDT s1283 heatsink waiting to be installed once i get my new case..

Thanks for the input, on both a case, and if i need a new power supply to allow for easier cable management, let me know!

Best solution

It is difficult to recommend anything without knowing your total budget (case + PSU)..
