Hi, I'm looking for a case for a system that I will be building soon (first system every built) and I was looking for a good case. I will be using a i7 with only ONE gpu but I plan on installing another one a couple months down the road. I want a case with dust filters and low noise levels. These are the cases I'm currently considering. Any suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated!

ZZA Solano 1000 Black/Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front ATX Full Tower Computer Case

COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Antec Nine Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

only the Lian Li and the Antec from the ones listed above have dust filters =(

HAF has great airflow, low noise, but no dust filters. However, you can install them in front and at the bottom of the case easily. I have one and love it.
If you want them on already, I would go for the Antec. Great airflow as well, but so huge.

Well, if you require dustfilters that leaves the Antec and the Lancool, of the two, I would personally choose the Lancool, especially if you already know you are going to crossfire or SLI in the future, both offer great air flow, but the Lancool is a bit more roomier (not sure why galta is saying the Antec is so huge, when it is the smallest of the listed cases).

What is your budget?

Another vote for the K62; best case of the ones you listed. The HAF is superior in terms of size and airflow, but lacks dust filters, side window, and the beautiful black interior. :D The A902 lacks a mobo tray cutout and uses too many screws IMO. The Azza Solano is alright if you expect to receive the MiR, but is a bit narrow. The only problems with the K62 is the lack of an E-SATA port and place for an external radiator. If they bother you, go with the HAF. Or if you're open to suggestions, take a look at the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced.
