Of these, which should I get?

I'm also looking for a MicroATX Mobo that will go with it.

EDIT: I need some more advice... I've got four vid cards in mind. These, firstly, and also this. Which should I get?

Antec makes really nice cases and I like the look of the 300 so I choose that one. Also the x850xt is a lot better then te x800xl. I just dont get why its so cheap

I like the AOPen one, but based purely on aesthetics. Ultimately its all you use a case for. If you did not care about Aesthetics you would buy a Cream Desktop Case, whether MicroATX or not. And I like the Silver
