Also I suppose I could rearrange the cords of the PSU but i don't think it would help much.

So, is there a fan on the side right now? What kind, maybe upgrade it?

I don't think so.
Do you suggest to get fans? Will they help? Idk it kind of sounds silly to buy more fans to keep the fan noise low.

What fans do you suggest I get for this case,

Hate to say it, but if you really want to see "acceptable temps with a dual GPU setup, it really requires a well planned (and often tuned) fan configuration for your case, and then custom profiles for the GPU fans based on % load.

A pair of decent GPUs these days playing a game are enough to heat a small bedroom for the winter :\\

With too much positive pressure you can really develop some dead spots in between the cards where ambient heat just builds up.

If possible, try to keep a gap between the two GPUs, like using like colored slots to keep a gap between the cards, even if this means running one or both at 8x, I would suggest it. 16x vs 8x for PCI-E is really only 1-3% performance difference on a card like a 6870.

I found the best results to come from having slightly negative pressure in my case (more air being pulled/pushed out than taken in) when running a dual GPU setup. A wind tunnel pulling air into the case from the lower front and pushing it out of the case from the rear 120mm fan and the top fan (hot air rises), while keeping the front fans running slightly slower than the rear/top fans. (assuming they are same type/cfm fans)

Can you put a 140mm on the side? That would be quieter than a 120.

Lots of choices, I use a Silverstone AP141. Quiet, good air flow, a little expensive but works great.

Alright I just bought some fans. Two 200mm fans for the front and top for now. I'll move the front one I currently have to the back and then buy a 140mm for the side in a few weeks. I'm low on money so two 200mm was all I could afford.

Two 200mm fans should be more quiet than two 120mm fans depending on the RPM difference. I'm not sure your case air flow is the problem to be honest. What you did will probably improve it a bit, but if you really want quiet, you'll have to change your GPU coolers.
