Whats a good and affordable mid case that supports long graphic cards?

im planing to buy windforce r9 290 or vaporx r9 290 when they come out. I think the zalman z11 case is just a centimeter too short to fit the windforce card. Which is a shame because the zalman z11 looks absolutely badass.

I love everything about that case except that the usb3 etensions dont go into the motherboard, they are just like usb jacks that must go into the back of the mother board.

Pretty much any case that has removable from HDD racks should work nicely for you. I have a CM Storm Scout 2 and it fits those requirements nicely, although I'd recommend the FD R4 over it.

Isa black box really the way to go? I want something that looks as sick as the zalman z11. If theres really no other choices then i'll have to reluctantly go with a black box then.

I want something that looks as sick

Just spray paint it with this symbol:

That'll make it look sick. I guess you'd have to do it in a color other than black though... maybe green. Green can look kinda ill.

Corsair graphite 500r

If you willing to pay a little more and want better looks, maybe Corsair Vengeance C70, I have this case.
