Here is parts list, im using old ram and an old hdd to save money i was wondering if there was any way to save more money on the bulid, for instance i could get a cheeper case but to fit my cards i would have to removie drive cages. I was hoping someone could help my with my choice and see if my bulid needs something/ can be bulit cheeper? Im kinda new so i dont know if i need an SSD opposed to 1 HDD?

then a way you can save a huge amount of money is not overspending on the gpus haha, I use an older 660 and i get 40-100 fps on almost any game at ultra settings on any game, and since not all games properly support sli id recommend getting one r9-290x or a gtx 780, it'll be more than enough performance at 1080p or even higher and quite a bit cheaper
