Default Help me decide on a case

I've been looking for a new case for over a week now, and I've finally narrowed it down to these two cases:

Lian Li PC-V1010B
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112166

SilverStone FT01-BW
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163121

I like the clean look of both cases, and the roomy factor of the Lian Li, but the Silverstone seems like it allows for better cable management.

I'm still open for suggestions, but please don't recommend the Antec 1200, Cooler Master (HAF, Cosmos, 690), Gigabyte (3D Aurora or Mars) as I dislike all these cases.

Help!

Same thing, but a better model.

I think I'm leaning more towards the Lian Li.

I actionally found a good deal on the PC-v2010, so I may go for that instead.

Those Thermaltake cases are too flashy for my tastes, but thanks for the input.

Antec P182SE or the 1200. Both are way roomy and costs a lot less.

Lian Li or Silverstone, both have very good build quality. Personally, I would go with the Lian Li if you have the room.

I'd take a look at this one too.
