Which case should I get?

Hello, I am currently choosing between the NZXT 440 and the White Define R5 w/window. Which one is better? I know the R5 has better airflow, but how significant is it? I want my PC to be decently quiet. Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qRRLgs

I like the 440 look better, and I like having 4 fans come with it, but apparently its airflow isn't as good. Will the PC run hot because of this, or will the temperatures still be okay?

And if I do decide to go with the R5, should I buy more fans for it? Thanks, Keith

Personally, I like the Phanteks Enthoo Pro. IMO, it's better than both.

The airflow on the h440 is fine. if you like the h440 get it. It's probably me, but I feel like people put way too much emphasis in air flow, yes its important, but slightly less airflow isn't going to cause your PC to go supernova and melt your components. Ok rant over. My point is if your temps are hotter its going to be like 1 degree. Both are great cases so get the one you think looks better.
