Sorry if this isn't my place to comment as I am a n00b, but a quick look at the size of those items, it looks like you should be able to get by with a 1560 with the padded divders : http://pelicancase.com​/large_pelican_cases.h​tml (external link)

If you wanted to step up for some more room for other flash equipment, look at the 1600 cases. Smart choice in picking pelican! They make some awesome cases.

This is my Pelican 1654 with three Elinchrom BXRI 500's and accessories. It's a huge case and I have a bit of room left over for more gear in the future. You might be able to get away with a 1560/64 or a 1610/14 with the Einsteins, but for me, I wanted a case that had plenty of room instead of trying to cram everything in.

IMHO the padded dividers afford you the flexibility to move the gear around.

Go through this thread if you havent already: LINK

And I use a Pelican 1564 to hold two Elinchrom 600RX's and two Vagabond Mini Lithiums with batteries and a few extra accessories like triggers and small strobe attachments.
