Wondering what's the most recommended ATX Cases available out there.

It should have space for future SLI/Xfire. I'm going for MSI 7850 twin frozr(225.48 x 111 x 38mm), and an upcoming i5-3570k with yet-undecided LGA2011 mobo. Most probably going to get 1 DVD bay, 1 3.5" hard drive, necessities and such.

Currently I've got my eyes on the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced, but that was a year ago, I'm wondering if anyone has any more updated recommendations. Price range should be around the CM690 II advanced price, ~$80USD. Slightly more is fine, if the upgrades are substantial. Preferably mid-towers, I don't think I need the extra space of full-towers, but please correct me if I'm wrong, as this is my first build.

Thanks in advance for all advice!

Thats a +1 right there for the Corsair 400R, i build alot of systems for alot of people, and the Corsair range of cases give you an amazing level of quality, features and room for your money, and the 400R will not only meet your needs but also any possible future needs you might have, ive used one of those for a 2 x 240mm rad watercooled gaming system which was a dream to build in that case.

thanks for all the help guys! You guys sure are fast. Right now I'm leaning towards the phantom 410 mostly due to having more usb slots, fan speed controls and sleek looks. Most of you seem to be clearly in favor of the corsair 400r, though. May i please know which factors influenced your views that way?
 
300 illusion is a great case but again 912 beats it-
912 supports m-atx and atx where as 300 supports only atx boards.
it has more drive bays
it has more expansion slots
it is also more roomy
it also looks better IMO.
not showing any fanboyism!
just a good discussion.
and for 400r,haf 922 is strong rival-

The 912 like all haf's imo is ugly as sin , however , thats subjective and at $50.00 you cant go wrong . True its not loaded with features but thats why its so inexpensive . Also its a starting point . The interior can be painted , fans upgraded , etc.
