Lian Li vs Coolermaster Cases

I need help choosing between these two cases.
Here is the motherboard I will be using:
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157265
Video Card
HIS 2gb 6950
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161372
Power supply
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX850 V2 850W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139022

My main concerns are cooling and fitting the video card, and the motherboard working with the case while having most/all of the input/output ports available. Also I am putting strong consideration in getting an SSD boot drive, so having a case that will support one with minimal hassle is also to be taken into consideration.

The three cases are
COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer SGC-1000-KWN1 Black SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K7B Black Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112154

COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Advanced Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

  1. COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II , i prefer it because many review website said it's good Case
  2. Lian Li is almost in a class of its own. It's expensive, because it has exceptional build quality. Value-for-money though, I'd also take the CM 690II or the CM 690II Plus. Excellent cases, well built and fairly well-priced for what you get.
  3. Will these cases fit a 6950? I read that there may be trouble with that, and looking at the dimensions of each of these cases, they are nearly the same sizes.
  4. Best answer
    According to the HIS website that card is 26cm long.
    The Storm Enforcer can take cards up to 27cm without removing the removable HDD cage.
    The K7B can take cards up to 28cm.
    The figure I have for the CM 690 II Advanced is 30cm, but I don't know if that is with or without the HDD cage removed.
