the r300 case are on sale for 40.00. on your build you could use 128g ssd boot and for few bucks more use one two gig storage drive.

Given Haswell's thermal/OC limitations, spending more than $30 on a 212 Evo or Xigmatek Gaia doesn't get you anywhere.

Agree it needs an SSD. If this is just for gaming, I'd ditch both HDDs for a 250GB Samsung 840 Evo.

If you have a lot of games you just have to available at all times, you can add a single HDD.

Are you using both monitors to game or one just for chat/web/other and the other for gaming? Any shooter/driving/sim will look jacked up with your centerline split by an inch of bezel.
