Top and back should be outs, the front two should be ins, and i would try with and without the side fan, sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts, sometimes it does nothing.

Side fan dropped my 2 GTX460's by 5C, get some fairly powerfull fans for the front 50 CFM+.

+1 to hunter315. I have an Antec 300 and that's pretty much my setup. It's a great little case and has fantastic airflow for the money. I'd also agree with beanoslim that you want some powerful fans for the front intakes, especially since you have the front air filters which will reduce airflow somewhat. I didn't bother with the side fan on my Antec300 though and chopped it out for a side-window mod ;)
