Default Case Question

First, I have chosen two cases. Which do you think would be better?

Also, if I buy a case do I need 2 DVD/CD drives or will just one work?

I would deffinetly go with the antec, your on a small budget?
1 DVD would do fine, unless you want to copy directly...2 would be faster but it really don't metter 1 or 2, in your case id go with 1 and then later buy a better one...

BTW your case comes with no power supply.

Thanks for the help! I do have a limited budget, but I already have a power supply picked out because you should never use the power supply that comes with the case (I learned that in these forums). But one question.. If the case has two slots for CD or DVD drives, and I only buy one, will there just be an empty slot in the case? Or is there something to put there.

It has a little matching cover that covers up the hole, but there won't be a drive there.
