Both the HAF 922 and HAF 912 are great, especially the 912 is a great value.

NZXT tempest EVO is great, Antec 900.

It'll fit you GTX570 and and even a 5970, read up on the reviews and there are other people using it with GTX570's.

Thanks for advice! Damn this is hard to decide...I want a decent case but not as expensive as the 932, don't want a cheap product, but i dont really want to spend over 100$

You're looking in the right direction for sure, and can't go wrong with those choices. Personally I've been very happy with my CM690 II since getting it in January. It's well under $100 as well. It too can fit that card, and has room to spare with my 5870.

Best $100 cases imo.

If you were sold on the 932 just get a 922 it's pretty much identical.
I know cuz i buy my cases in person.
Bought an Antec 902 instead of the HAF 922.
The 922 has unpainted interior/no dust filtration/it's really big for a mid tower a little larger then i like.
I'm not slamming it cuz it was my first choice and is an excellent case.
Went with the 902 cuz it was windowed/all black(including the interior)/filtered dust intakes
I also have a 690II which is also a very good case.

I feel Lian-li's are overpriced, that case has inferior cooling capabilities than the other ones listed, nor it's construction quality sticks out or anything, it's a good case but you can get better than that for less.

Thanks for that list, do you know if any/all of them would have enough room to sli two gtx570s?

All the cases i listed will fit cards 10.5" long no problem.

CM 690 II Advanced, with maybe an extra fan or 2.

I've been looking over case dimensions, and the haf 922 says its only 10 inches, yet it can fit a 10.5 inch graphics card? I noticed the haf 932 dimensions said IT was only 9 inches?
