To cut the story short, I'd like to hear your opinions on the cases I'm looking into for the PC I'm putting together

MB: ASUS P8H77-M LE Intel H77 1155 or ASUS P8H77-M Intel H77 1155
CPU: INTEL Core i5-3550 3.30GHz
GPU: SAPPHIRE ATI HD7770 Vapor X 1GB DDR5 OC edition
RAM: G.Skill RipJaws 8 GB (2x4 GB) Dual-Channel Kit
STOR.: WD HDD 500 GB, WD5000AAKX, SATA3 7200 rpm
PSU: HEXA500 from my old PC

For the case, I'm considering either TT V3 black or LC-Power PRO-923B - Red Captor. The LC-Power is out of stock at the moment and TT is available. TT V3 is known to have a few design flaws and is made out of plastic, while I've never heard of LC-Power, it's a German company and the case is made out of metal.

Do you think everything will fit inside both cases ?? Which one should I go with (the price is the same)? The only thing holding me back from taking TT right now are those design flaws and the fact its plastic, while LC is metal.

Budget for a case is ~$50. Only these two cases are available to me at the moment. I don't like LEDs and spaceshuttle cases, but these two cases don't look too annoying with their LEDs.
