If it's going to be stuck inside a MAME cabinet it doesn't need to silent enough to warrant air cooling anyway. It doesn't need to be pretty either. You could keep that case, leave the panels off like you say and point a huge, slow moving fan at it. Maybe install a fan on the cabinet itself close to the PC, for sucking out the hot air...or get a cheaper/uglier/roomier case.

Now that you've added the 750Ti I'd get a 5-600W PSU for it, a stronger PSU will be doing less work, generate less heat and run more efficiently.
