cause the answer doesnt really matter. buy a case big enough for all your shit, and buy one that you think looks good. problem solved. go to newegg or xoxide and look for full towers

very funny.

anyway, you do seem to know what you are looking for, so there is not much to say.

the only thing you need to be carefull about is the length of the graphics cards. make sure they'll fit in the case you choose, although they should fit in most full tower cases i guess.

i didn't really get it if you have the 800D or want to get an 800D case.

A Cooler Master HAF X should provide plenty of space, looks much better than the 800D imho.
Even the Fractal Design Define XL seems like a good choice with plenty of room and comes with some sound absorbing material on the side panels, so it should be quiter than others.

mid towers have better looking designs in my opinion but function is more important than form. i use a haf 932 and its very nice, i just wish the side panel window was bigger, and that the large fans were a more standard size

Cooler Master and Antec are my go-to manufacturers when I first put a build together. My experience with Tt cases is they can be rather heavy and a bit difficult to work in. I have never had issues (as far as working in the case goes) with a Cooler Master case.

E8400 Stock; CoolerMaster H50; Asus P5Q Deluxe; G. Skill 2*2GB + 2*1GB PC2 1066; Sapphire 4850; WD 6400AAKS; Win 7 Pro; PCP&C Silencer 750W; Antec 300

Some of th cases that I liked and have used come from Lian-LI, COOLERMASTER & Antec.
Now obviously it all depends if you want to go massive (Full Tower) or Mid-Size tower for more gaming and possibly carry the case from one location to another.

The last case I bought was from Cooler Master.

Nice and awzome case.
