What case should i get?

im looking to build a new computer and ive decided on everything except for the case.

im debating between the 500r vs HAF xm and even maybe the 650D (im not against getting a full tower either)

what i need in the case is i need to be able to fit SLI MSI 660ti. otherwise i dont plan on overclocking all much. maybe int he future so it would nice to have that as a slight option.

for cooling im perfectly okay with Air cooling to start, if i ever plan on water cooling it would be nice to have that as an option though.

any suggestions between these three cases or maybe even theres other out there i should take a look at??
