What do you expect for your casing? Fill us in with what you want :USB, eSATA, fans, drive bays etc.

EDIT: I noticed you wanted inverted case. The silverstone Raven series is inverted.

You don't need to install your games to an SSD, it won't give you higher fps.

Just get one SSD, if you want to put games on it maybe get a 80-120GB drive. It really doesn't make sense to buy an 8GB one and 60GB one.

USB: 3.0s if possible but not a must.
A bunch of 2.0s is enough for me. 4 maybe.
eSATA: Not really necessary but if it's there, i don't mind. I might end up using it.
Fans: I'd want a casing with good airflow and cooling but that does not make too much noise. Maybe with 2 fans with LED infront?
Drive bays: I don't need many of those. I don't see myself buying more hard drives in the future.
If there is a window, it'd be good but if there is not, i'll be fine.

I don't necessarily need lighting for the casing but if i could, it'd be good.

Oh yeah size. Mid-ATX if possible. :3

Hmm. I know that it won't give any higher fps but it'll launch faster and i believe that's important too. Thanks for your suggestion.
I forgot to edit the main post though, sorry about that.

You might want to calculate how much capacity you need if you plan on putting games on SSD. It's a pain in the behind with small capacities on the cheaper SSDs.
64GB factory is 59.6GB effective, don't populate the SSD past 80% (especially with asynchronous ones like the Agility {EDIT: M4s are synchronous, but I still recommend you do not use more than 80% of capacity}) ie. 47.7GB, Windows takes up 16~20GB, modern titles take 10GB+ each, so you're left with 2 games + some applications on a 64GB drive.

Oh god. The horror. D:
Can't i use part of the HDD for caching and use the SSD only for games? :O

I think that would be backwards and stuff. I don't know though.

And a mid-ATX tower...

Cooler Master 690 II Advanced
or
the Corsair 600T

I'm sorry, but unless you plan on spending more money on sdd capacity you'll have to compromise by placing large games that aren't played often on hdd. Which many OCN members do! You can place 1 or 2 games that are played often on the SSD and it would be fine

Hmm. Could you recommend one which is in the spoiler thingy bar?
Because if i buy it locally, it'll cost cheaper.

OMG those faces are so nice! Did you draw them up yourself?
Nothing better in my opinion than the CM storm enforcer.
I know, the color is red, but there are blue megaflow 230MM fans out there
