I'm putting $1500 worth of parts into this case and I am curious if this was a solid choice and will last for years to come. Thanks!

It's a great case, google for reviews and see for yourself :D

From memory they're all (or all the ones I read anyway) highly rated and usually recommended to some degree.

Solidly built, keeps everything cool with three fans, cable management is great, Fractal Design isn't stingy with the fasteners, and the instructions are all very detailed and clear. It's a joy to work with.

Edit to add: I see a lot of people looking for advice on fan setups, so you might find this article on various fan setups helpful if you do decide to go with the R5. They used an R3 in their testing, but the setup is pretty similar.
