Too much to handle on what to pick

Hey guys, I've been looking at a lot of cases. It needs to have a cool looking design, have maximum airflow or liquid cooling benefits, and needs to be future proof. I am technically looking at the NZXT Phantom 630, 820, Switch 810, and the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. Or if you have other suggestions, please do interrupt me NOW.

Here's what I have in mind. (Phantom 630 is included right now)

NOTE: I am not building this 'til October(birthday gift for myself) or November(might wait for Black Friday). Going to include another 7950 in the future, ssd's and I do vid edits that's why I have 16gb ram. Till then I may be able to get more funds. I already have $700 on hand and another $400 next week I guess. I take donations too if you don't mind. :-)

Forgot to mention, it needs to have front usb 3.0 and windowed. I like to see and regret for what I spent my hard-earned cash. Lol
