Need Advice on Case

I need help choosing a case for a gaming rig. My budget is $2K. I really like the Corsair 600t, but isn't $200.00 (newegg), total after everything, too much for this budget? I'm a first time builder. I'm also considering Corsair 500r (white) and Cooler Master Haf 321. Please help.

I can get the Corsair 600t from TigerDirect for only 149.99, tax-free and free shipping, but I don't trust UPS shipping this heavy case to Cali from IL. and then I have to send it back which would cost me the same and plus the hassle.

    They are suggesting some nice cases withing your budget.
    I would suggest http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-SuperSpeed-Interior-RC-942-KKN1/dp/B003S68Q0Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1328780306&sr=8-1
    If size isn't an issue and it's still under 200$.
    Supposed to be the case with best airflow as of 2011 if I'm not mistaken.
    Has USB 3.0, side panel and plenty of space for future upgrades.

    I was speaking about the "Special White Edition." It's 202.22 after tax and shipping.
  9. Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series $169.00 .. $159.00 with rebate card but $19.99 shipping . Nice looking case .

    I'm just doing to go with the CM Haf 932 (free shipping). Haf X is way too big. There is no justification to purchase a case for over $200 with a budget of $2K so that one can just stick their CPU components in there. Players view their monitors, not the gaming rig.

    Haf 932 has over 2,000 reviews with 5/5 stars, so there's no going wrong here. It seems that CM cases are popular. 932 has dust filters so that's nice.

    Guess NCIX is too expensive $149.99/free shipping

    You think I should get the 600T white and not CM 932**? What's your experience with their shipping (NCIX). I'd hate to hassle and spend more money to ship a damaged case back to them.

    **at Newegg 600T only has a few hundred reviews while Haf 932 has over 2,200 5/5 stars.

    NCIX is every bit as good as Newegg for shipping.
    I've ordered cases and everything else from Ncix and it shipped out of B.C. (i live in Ontario)= never had a damaged item or even a box that was messed up.
    Like i said Ncix in the US is in L.A..
    Buy whatever case you prefer they're both great cases.
    Last time i checked most HAF series cases have no filters.pretty sure the 932 has no filters.
    Why companies like this exist.

    In real use you only need intake filters imo.
