right now im looking at this coolermaster. do you think it could fit the hdd's and 5770's well?
Nice case! haven't read or heard anything negative about it..
Think it would be fine for your plans.
The HAF912 has a lot of options you can add, and features almost the exact same interior.
HAF 922 is huge and very good = doesn't have fan filters though
The coolermaster haf 922 is probably one the best mid-range cases you can get for under $100.
Some of it's features include:
five 5.25" external drive bays
transparent side panel window
two enormous 200mm fans (one in the front and one on the top) as well as a 120mm rear fan
tool-free installation of drives
Ton's of room to fit the largest video cards (and liquid cooling)
dimensions are: 22.20" x 10.00" x 19.70"
With two usb 2.0 ports, audio, an e-sata (yes there is one). This is definitely good enough as USB 3.0 still isn't too mainstream yet. And if you invest in a decent motherboard you can have the usb 3.0 ports that you are looking for. This case is very spacious, well built, and even looks pretty good (IMO). This case is currently going for $104 on newegg and that price drops to 89 bucks with a rebate.
