The second one looks more sturdy, looks like a thicker gauge steel and wont be flimsy without the drawers in it.

Go for the second one. It looks stronger and the drawers wont get in the way.

Man, that second one would be a great idea.
Just an idea for you, mount the actual Optical and HDD cages to the front door. And please post a worklog! Would love to follow this.
