Depends on your budget, either of those are good.

If you want something cheaper get a Antec 300.

If you DO like the first case posted(Corsair), it seems to come with the needed adapter to use usb2.0 anyway.

I am a huge fan of the 300 for the price too.

If you go to the Corsair website select downloads, you should see the case manual.

Also, the last pic on the Newegg website shows it as well(its just a 2x5 pin usb 2.0 header to 2x10 pin usb3 header so you can use the cases built in usb3 ports on usb systems).

EDIT, images :)  Top is Newegg bottom is from Corsair.

Both the CM 690 II advanced(usb 2 and usb 3.0 case. I do not see any usb 2 -> 3 adapter with this case) have a video card limit of 304mm / 11.96 inch.

This leaves the 6990 out(just) at least on paper.

Corsair said 400R would be fine for a 6990. I haven't tried it yet, I don't want to waste money on 6990 ;) .
