Can't decide on ATX mid gaming case

Hi, I need some advice on which case to get. I'm going to be using it primarily for gaming, my build has an i5-2500k and 1gb radeon 6950, and I'll probably be overclocking both, so I'd like to have good cooling. It shouldn't be huuuuge, and it should look pretty good too, and be in the $50-$100 price range (could maybe go a little over if it's worth it). Two I had considered are the Antec Three Hundred Illusion (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) and the Cooler Master Storm Scout (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...), but any suggestions are more than welcome.
Thanks a ton in advance for the help.

Both cases you considered are good. Since the Antec is cheaper why not let that decide?

I've read things about the Antec having poor cable management. Is this true?

It is not the best but easily acceptable. (more a question of how handy you are!)

both are about the same in cable management, frankly i find it over-hyped feature (build quality i find is more important). A few cables ties and you are set with either case, personally I would go with the antec 300.
