I think the Corsair 800d, but for that amount of money why don't you consider the CoolerMaster HAF 932 case? It's an amazing case

i dont like the 800d on the outside tooo boxy for my taste but on the inside i love the all black finish, as for the tj07 ive seen allot of nice wc rigs built with that and they have looked the best in my opinion...

Of those 2 I would choose the Corsair 800D (but I don't like the side window) - The TJ07, imo, has better side panels / vents but overall the 800D just gets it.

Corsair hands down... Anything with an included hot swap hard drive back plane is thinking.....

Aside from the cost... I like it....

However, I still love my Thermaltake Armor series.... (My Avatar)

The Corsair 800D, no contest!
If you don't like the side window then you can replace the side panel for $20

There's a reason why the Corsair 800D is really popular even with it's price tag. I think it's an amazing case, but why not consider a Lian Li as well? Lian Li makes some of the most respected cases in my opinion and have been making aluminum cases for a while now. Nothing's wrong with the 800D at all, but I'd personally take a Lian Li for the same price.

Lian Li Armorsuit PC-P50R Link, or Armorsuit PC-P50WB Link, or Armorsuit PC-P80 or PC-P80r

Here's a nice PC-P80r:
