Would have been nice if you would have linked the case names to the sites you were looking at them.
Since you didn't I linked them to Newegg.com.

As for the choice, I'd go with the Antec Nine Hundred myself.
Better airflow & heat dissipation IMO...

To be honest, there are a million people with either of these cases. Be original. Those are both great cases but live a little.

He gave us a choice between 2 cases that he wanted to buy. Apparently he likes both, but wanted the one that had the best airflow.
So I gave him my choice if I had to choose between the two.

But I don't have one of those cases & I'm sure there's all kinds of cases that are used here at AOA...
I have an ABS Stealth Black Anodized Aluminum Midtower Case .
Of course I've done quite a bit of modifications to the cooling of the case, but it still looks basically the same.
Btw if you're wondering who made this for ABS it's Cooler Master, but you can't buy this anywhere anymore so I have a "Limited Edition" model.
It's a very sturdy case at 31lbs empty.

I was not trying to be rude. Just trying to stimulate originality. I do like the Armor case.

Good luck with your build.

Sometimes I think its better I just keep my mouth shut...
No offense taken Sam & I should have known he'd pick the opposite of my choice...
Bottom line is that you're happy with what you got!

An honest opinion is never wrong and should not be held back for the sake of caution. That is what the person is asking for. Your opinion, not the Ten Commandments! There doesn't have to be any agreement. There is no implied commitment or anything else.
The real bottom line is that a person has a place to go to ask for an honest opinion and he will get one. Then it's his choice what he does or doesn't do.

I just don't want anyone to take me the wrong way & I don't want to offend anyone is all.
But thanks Porpor, that did make me feel a little better.

I myself love the Antec 1200 case. That thing is a beast. Man, the water cooling goodness I could fit in there..

I was gonna suggest the Cooler Master, but I'm too late. Let us know what you think of the Thermaltake Armor. Maybe even do a review of it if ya have time.
