A while back i already asked some things about upgrading my pc.
Now i have desited to build a complete new one.

I've been looking at some cases and i really like the Silverstone Raven 90° system and was thinking of buying a Raven RV01 but then i saw the new RV02-E

Pro's: Sliding door (cool) no bluray-rom in sight.
Con's: No Mobo backplate cutout for easy cpu cooler switching

Pro's: Mobo backplate cutout for easy cpu cooler switching, better cooling, the window is on 'the other side' wich is better in my case.
Con's: Case design messed up when bluray-rom is placed

Please tell me what you think, maybe you think is should take adifferent case.. let me know...

I'd go for RV02-E.

I myself have an Antec-300 Illusion. I'd say check it out, the price on it combined with the cooling it provides is great for a gaming setup or heavy usage. The front has a cleanable mesh with a filter behind it to limit dust intake. Out of those two however I'd say the second one.

why not go for the NZXT Phantom?

NZXT Phantom

it maybe a little expensive but imo its worth it, especially if you plan to use water cooling.

This is a Antec P280.

No removable tray but has a huge hole in it for CPU backplate switching.
Smart solution for HDD's with individual removable brackets, set in place 90 degrees from previous standard for easy management.

Watercooling holes... and such.

Very nice looking. The door in front can be opened 270 degrees. (Meaning it can be put back all the way to the side door on the left if you want dvd/bluray rom and fans to be visible.)
