Gaming Computer Case

Hey guys!

So I'm building my first ever pc :D  and looking for some help, specifically with the case but any other advice is helpful also. Anyways, I know I'll be using an eVGA GeForce GTX 580 3 GB graphics card (my dad ordered new graphics cards and got this one on accident so it's mine now :p ). Ideally I would like to spend no more than $150ish on the case, but i'd rather spend more money on the case to ensure proper airflow, cooling, etc. The pc itself will have to be able to run 3DS Max, Maya, Inventor, After Effects, AutoDesk, Battlefield 3 and such. I'm thinking a full tower only because I would like to not have to cram all the components into the case. Thanks!

Do you have preferences appearance wise?
Do you prefer a clean non-flashy look or a gamer(window,led) look?

Um... Sorry but that NZXT is crap. NZXT is decent? Where have you been for the past decade? The Phantom is really good but other than that, NZXT cases suck.

HAF 932 for great cooling performance, extremely good wc, and it's HUGE.

Again , the Phantom.

The Corsair 500r for great cable management, mid-tower size (but can still fit the 6990- the longest card in history), cooling on this case is also great, and it's sexy

No do not get the 600t as it is old and overpriced. Same as the 650D.

The new 500r or 400r are good performers because they are newer.

The 500r beats the 600t ($160) and the 650D ($190) in thermal performance.
But the HAF 932, 912, 922, or the awesome ($200) HAF X 942 are great.

From personal experience at this specific point in time I can only recommend the coolermaster HAF series (as amuffin has said) and the antec DF series/1200.

A downside to this is that the majority of these are rather flashy.
From the reviews etc the silverstone raven 2 has a nice look and layout without being overly flashy
