Just like it says in the title which one out of these cases is well... better? not in terms of price but reliability and what keeps the computer cooler. My MSI GTX 680 Lightning had just arrived to my PO BOX and my current case cannot hold the card. Essentially, what i want to know, what will go better with this graphics card?

Both are fine for that card and I would say both are good for reliability. Feature wise they are both roughly the same as well.
Read some reviews on the cases and go with the one you like, either will do fine.

My work PC uses a Carbide 500R and my home PC uses the Graphite 600T. Both are excellent cases. The only slight problem I have with the 600T is that it's very big and very heavy, and if you need to move your case anywhere it's a huge pain to do so. The 500R is lighter but has the same amount of room as the 600T does.
