As the title says

I cant decide which case I need and I am stuck on these two (IMO) great cases. The components which I will install inside the case are:

CPU: Intel i5 3570k

CPU Cooler: Hyper 212 Evo

GPU: Radeon 7950

MoBo: Asrock Extreme 4 Z77

and other standard hardware

Budget is not really of an issue between these two cases

Both are good cases so really you cant go wrong with either one. Go by looks if nothing else.

Both of them are great, but the antec has the slight advantage. why?? i don't know, just something about it. :)

definitely 410 for looks not sure since i don't have both for performance but i would go with the phantom (non 410) depending on the color you can get it nearly at the same price as the 410

I've got a 1200 and my friend has a 900. I love them both, but they're a pain in the rear to clean the filters on. There's 8 screws per drive cage to slide out the cage and access the filter. Even if you just leave in one row of screws, you'll have 2 per cage to clean the filters. It's a pretty serious design flaw I think. It makes me never want to clean my case.
For that alone, I might recommend the 410, but without ever using a 410 I can't vouch for the build quality. Tom's loves it though and it's a good looking case. Reminds me of an alien.
