Case dilemma/problem

Hello all

I have a build (which will be my first) that I am happy with, but the case is kind of causing me problems. I want a NZXT Phantom 410 but I don't know if it is an adequate size for all of my components so the dilemma is go for the mid tower which might restrict cooling and might not even house the components well or go for the bigger more expensive full tower Phantom which will have good cooling and be spacious enough for upgrades but could cause minor problems with placement. Could someone please offer their opinion, also could you please tell me if my power supply is adequate as well for all of the tasks I might also add things into the 5.25 bays like a NZXT Aperture M (when it gets to the UK, if it does) or maybe even a NZXT Bunker (because I am getting a wired keyboard and a wired mouse). Feel free to rate the build I'm mainly going to be using it for gaming. Also I might crossfire the video card later when it starts to run out of puff.

Thanks to anyone who contributes
Alex

There is no reason the 410 won't house the components you chose, and then some. If your graphics card is too long, the middle drive bays are removable. But according to their specs, it will accept a 280mm long card w/add-on fan and a 305mm card w/fan removed.
