Enough over thinking, looking for critical review on [build] Budget $700

This build is a bit over my budget, mostly because of the case which I'm having a hard time deciding on, aesthetically. I will probably wind up buying a cheaper one, but I'm a sucker for ports on the front. I have a Microcenter close by, so I'm sure I can at least a few of these parts for less than the list.

This build is specifically for gaming. Mostly MMORPG's (swtor, gw2, eso), Elder Scroll games and maybe even some Battlefield 3.
My hope is to play these games on Ultra, but I think that is folly for the budget, so High will suffice as well. If there is a way for me to achieve that on this budget, please let me know.

I feel pretty confident, but I just wanted a second glance. Thanks!

I would skip the expensive case (if you like it get it) and get something like this.

Then, upgrade the CPU to a AMD fx-6300 and the cooler to a hyper 212+ EVO

Funny, I was just doing my own once over and I thought the same about the AMD, and that's for that case recommend, I really like it!! Finally!
