Default Which of these 2 cases should I buy?

I want to buy a case that looks nice and stylish but doesn't go over the top. I don't want any flashing LEDs or anything like that. I have decided that I am going to sell my current rig and build a completely new high end gaming computer. I need to have good airflow for cooling and enough space for all my gear. I'll take any suggestions on which case to get or if you reccomend any other case. Right now I think I am going to go with black.

Case #1 : My bro says this one could be too small and might not provide enough air flow.

Case #2: I know that this one is a lot more expensive, but I like how it looks and I'm positive that the four fans will do a sufficient job of cooling and it is definatlely large enough.

Anyways, yea I'm still looking for other possibilities, if you have anything else in mind, let me know.

Thanks,
Jake

That first one is cool looking but it might not have enough room. The second one is large enough for sure. What hardware are you getting?

I think the second one would be a wiser move, because you need all the airflow you can get. Plus, with four fans, the hot air will be out and the cool air will be in. The first one looks cool, but in my opinion, versatility beats style.

I'll take a look at what you recommended xzerox, and I'll post the specs to what I'm getting pretty soon, still trying to finalize some items.

Thanks,
Jake

If u are ready to spend the required money on the Lian Li case then go for it. The case looks nice, has enough space, has 2x 120mm fan (moves more air with less noise than 80mm fan), 2x 80mm fan and is from a very good manufacturer. So it's definitely a great case!
