Are these good cases?

I was in a debate about which case I want for my first pc build. Now I know some say if it's your first build you shouldn't worry too much about looks, but I just totally threw that out the window. I narrowed down my search to the apparently new but good looking Rosewill Stryker M, and the sleek Cooler Master Elite 430. I really like both of these cases, and I trust both of these brands. At the time of making this I found a new case that I like, and it's the Coolermaster Elite 431 plus. Does anyone have any suggestions? The Rosewill is not listed in the cases section though.

The Cooler Master Elite 430 does not have any front USB 3.0 ports. All three are budget cases with typical structural design for that price range. Noise levels would also be similar. Differences is basically aesthetics.

Yeah I noticed that too. I might even end up switching my motherboard late on, but I'm not sure.

I decided to go with the MSI Z97 PC Mate. I got my choices down to the Elite 430 and the Stryker M, and I'm leaning towards the Stryker M. Updated Build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZCWdTW
