Thank you all for the responses. Due to the (expected) wildly varied opinions, I am unfortunately more adrift than when I started though.
However, after some more ground work and research, I have narrowed down my search; so unless someone can throw a better bone I'll most likely be getting the HAF 932 or X. Both are full tower's, have decent air flow, and have room for cable management. I don't like the look of it, but I don't like the look of any of the cases so there's no love lost there. The actual selling point was that after examining these cases at the local Frys, they are wider and taller (inside the actual bay) by an inch or two than the other similar cases. With CPU coolers growing excessively taller, and the foot long graphics cards (horribly poor fan and fan "case" designs not withstanding) becoming the norm, that extra room will make tinkering much less annoying for me and my shrek hands.
