damn... you'r really goin' for broke arn't ya...

case, you can get this:
you'll need a psu with that as well, and this is a super nice one:

as for monitors, if you want lcd's get a couple dell 2001fp's, or if you want widescreen the 2005fp's.

also, if you're spending so much money i recomend getting a pair of raptors and setting them up in a raid0 instead of getting 2 80gb hd's.

i'm basing all of these recomendations on that you have no budget (it doens't look like it from your present config)

Geez, what kind of budget do you have?

Go with a big case, so you can get good airflow. I hear the Shark case (I think it is by ThermalTake) is really good.

Have you chosen a HSF? Surely, with all this, you're not thinking of using stock?

Monitor? Heck, go for twin 19" LCDs. The ViewSonic VP912b got BestBuy status in April's PCWorld. They list it at $560, and with a response rate of 12ms. They also gave the rating to the Dell UltraSharp 1905FP, at $529, with a 20ms response rate. The Dell has 3 USB ports and a "nicely designed thin bezel".

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / ASUS GeForce GTX 960 GTX960-DC2OC-2GD5
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 x6 core / MSI B350 Gaming Plus
Samsung 970 EVO 250GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue SSD 250GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB
2x4GB DDR4 2400 / Win10 Pro x64
Mionix Naos 7000 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard
