It is your money, however never trust a cheap power supply. It won't properly power your stuff. Honestly if you want to save on a case then look on Craigs list for a old server tower. But don't cheap out on the power supply. Spend the money and buy a good quality power supply.

Dual processors? Overclocking? Seriously, quit looking at that case and power supply. Any money you save will probably go towards REPLACING the first batch of hardware.

There is no way that PSU will run even one Xeon let a lone two. Invest in a nice case and PSU, as MpG already stated if you get this case and PSU it will most likely end up frying the first batch of hardware. I would look at the Chenbro cases (Welcome to Chenbro) expensive but usually pretty damn huge.

If it's only the case you want, it's your call. But the case looks like a real loser too. The rear fan grill is brutally restrictive, it's only got mounting spots for 3 fans, and their positioning doesn't look particularly conducive to good case airflow. Depending on your plans, the case won't accept an E-ATX motherboard. You want a radiator in the front? The HDD cage is definitely going to interfere with any front radiator placement, and even if you move that, a triple rad is going to occupy ALL of the front slots.

I'd suggest diverting $50 more from your hardware budget. $100 may not get you a top-of-the-line case, but it'll give you some decent choices.
