Value is an equation that only YOU can determine.
Pick the one that visually appeals to you the most.

Or, for $50 or so, you can buy an equally functional Antec 100/200/300 case.

500R is a clean looking case
HAFX is kinda big and ugly (but functional)

I happen to like the looks of the white corsair better, and it is cheaper.
But, you asked about value.

Corsair is good quality.

For top quality, you can't beat lian li cases.
the LIAN LI Lancool PC-K58W is a good case for less:

Check out their other cases too.
Also, look at NZXT, Silverstone, and Antec.

well I have been using cool master since I started building PCs and I can tell you if its durable your after then that's what youll get. All mine survived welding, cutting, grinding, adding windows and vents ect, But any case that can take a day of machining is OK by me.

I don't much like windows either.
The cases tend to be a bit noisier.
Go to newegg, and filter by lian li in cases.
Sort by price and you will see several results.
Here is one:

Both are excellent and HUGE cases. I have a nzxt gamma which I feel is really big and the HAFX is 2 times bigger (in total volume)

20 more for the 500r is a good deal
