The Corsair Crystal 280X RGB is indeed large enough to fit an R9 280X, and AMD isn't really using that name anymore so why not just poach it?  As with the Air 240, the case has two compartments, one for your motherboard and add in cards, with a separate one behind to hold your PSU as well as fans or even a radiator.  RGB addicts will love the pair of LL120 RGB fans and Lighting Node Pro controller.  Take a peek at this new case over at TechPowerUp.

"The Corsair Crystal 280X RGB takes the idea behind the Air 240, and the classy looks and material mix of the Crystal family, and marries them in an even more compact, powerful, and beautiful enclosure that includes not only better liquid-cooling compatibility but also features Corsair's retail-grade LL120 RGB fans and the Lightning Pro Node."

Great choice for students living in small dorm rooms without enough floor space for both a dedicated shoe cabinet and a separate PC. The 280X helps, not only allowing for a (mATX-based) PC build but also providing a small shoe cabinet (for a single pair) in the same enclosure -- a welcome addtion.

To ensure the PC components and the pair of shoes don't collide by accident, the shoe compartment is separated from the PC chamber by a thin wall.

Another well-thought-out feature is the case ventilation, which not only is capable of cooling the PC but also helps getting the stink out of the shoes.

And for that kind of people who often have problems with finding their shoes in the dark, the case even addresses this particular problem with its pre-installed lighting. What an amazing thing!

Much more elegantly put than I ever could have.

Corsair, cut off the PSU chamber, shoehorn an ATX PSU mount above the motherboard, and you've got yourself a sale.
