Already have RAM and hard drive, may get an SSD if i can afford.

Looking to get a 1080p 2ms hdmi 22-24 inch monitor for le gaming.

Should I get a 4690k instead of the 70?

Finally, any idea for a much better case with better airflow/cable management opportunities?

The video card has only one HDMI port. I would use the DVI+HDMI on the video card for optimal performance. Or the Display port (if your monitor supports DisplayPort) and HDMI. I would get one or two 120mm fans for the rear of the case for better air circulation.

Not really :(

I have an MSI 270X Gaming. I have two 1080p, one on DVI other on HDMI. Display port is better for higher bandwidths, like 4K monitors. I think DVI and HDMI should be fine though.

yes get the 90k instead. Also look into getting a CPU cooler a Coolermaster 212 Evo will be fine.

Just ordered the 90k. Would my MoBo be okay for overclocking?
