I was on the verge of buying a CM Storm Trooper, which I know is a great case but it is also very big. Maybe I need it I don't know, but here is my list of components I need to fit into the case. I left out cooling fans since it will depend on the case. You'll notice there is no HDD just an SSD. This is just personal pref.

EVGA GTX 670 2GB Superclocked

Crucial M4 Micron C400 Ssd 256GB 2.5IN SSD

ASUS P8Z77-V Pro LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 SLI 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SATA3 DisplayPort USB3.0 Motherboard

Visiontek Killer 2100 Gaming NIC 128MB 400MHZ Gigabit Network Interface Card PCI-E1

Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Vengeance Lowprofile 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750M 750W ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan 5 Year Warranty

ASUS BC-12B1ST Internal 12X Blu-Ray Reader & 16X DVD Writer Combo Drive OEM

Intel Core i5 3570K Unlocked Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge 6MB Retail

This case just came out on the market about two weeks ago. It's a mid tower and it comes with everything but the kitchen sink.

if you don't want to buy more cooling fans 500R is the way to go has nice LED fans inside to the cooling is better than 600T(because 600T needs to buy more fans) it has enough space to fit a 690 inside if you take out the brackets.

i can also really like this antec case

or this one too

both look nice the first one has more space to it while the second focus more on cooling with a lot of fans

it seems you don't have a aftermarket heatsink

for light overclocking on the new IVY a hyper 212 evo is good if you want to go higher(which i do recommend since IVY tends to get very hot), get a noctua one

There is definitely a chance i go with a 690 in the near future and sell my 670 to my brother. I am going to go with the 500R, if I do remove the brackets & go with the 690 then I will get the Noctua fans as well. Thanks for the help.
