Smile Antec 900

So I've got a Antec 900 computer case and I get really frustrated with the lack of cable management options. So in the near future I'm looking at a big video card that's about 12 inches and with my R7970 I got then promptly returned. That was a 12 inch video card, lol. Anyway what would be a good case that has awesome cable management and breathing room for a nice video card? In addition, much bigger I'm running out of hard drive slots.

Well I'd like at least a few more HDD slots. Silence would be nice but not a necessity, water cooling would be for the CPU only so like a H80, but mainly it's the amount of space for a big video card and amazing air flow. Specifically for the video card's length is my current biggest problem.

On the cheaper end 690 II Advanced is my personal choice.

You didn't answer any questions at all with that..

Basically your talking about any "enthusiast" or "gamer" mid or full tower case..

How many drive? What price?.. A H80 is not water cooling in a way that you need anything special to mount it..

The case you picked above is fine but then so are 100 others..
Basically choose any Corsair, Coolermaster, Bifinx, Fractal cases to name but a few
They will tell you in their spec's what size a video card they will take or how many drives... this makes things much easier as all you have to do is find one that you like the look of and then check the spec sheet / look for a review.
