So recently i have bought a new Cooler for my graphics card the AMD HD6870 because it became to hot like 95 degrees celsius so i bought the Artic cooling Accelero Extreme plus and gues what its not gonna fit in my case so im searching for a case wich will be able to handle the size of my Graphics card the total length of the graphics card is 318 MM long, i am probaly gonna buy a new motherboard cpu, etc.... so i wont the case to have plenty of cooling options, i am not interested in liquid cooling.
and i am also hoping i could get a case like this around 130 euro.

i hope you guys have some good choices for me so i start gaming. :D  tnx

check out the haf x from coolermaster

318mm is pretty long--my gtx570 is 292mm but theres probably at a guess another 75mm room left--the hard drive cages are end on so long card wont stop you putting in a hard drive once the graphics card is installed

HAF X is right at the top of your price bracket:

HUGE case that will fit pretty much anything you throw in it.

Same goes for the NZXT Phantom:

Some cheaper, slightly smaller options:
HAF 932: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=...
HAF 922: http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6606
CM Storm Enforcer: http://www.cmstorm.com/en/products/chassis/enforcer/
Antec 900: http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MjY5OQ==

Theres loads more but theres a few of the more popular ones to look at. Corsair also make some great cases. Just go with something you like the look of that will support big graphics cards and house an ATX motherboard :)

Ive not heard of that case before, however if its big enough in size to fit your needs, i see no reason not to get it :) 

The differences between most cases are very minimal but overall most offer many of the same features and sometimes your simplay paying for brand names.

If you find a case you like, that fits your budget, and your planned build will fit inside (size wise) go for it :D 

Id have a quick flick about on google/youtube and see if theres any reviews on the case - just incase everyones saying its terrible and falls apart after a week (which im sure it wont, but you never know ;-) )
