First Time Building a PC Questions

Hi, this is my first time building a PC, and I do video editing with some gaming.
This is my list: http://
My motherboard is going to be ASUS (M5A88-V EVO) ATX AMD 880G (It wasn't on the list).
I have a keyboard, mouse, headset, and a blu-ray drive already. I'll probably get a BenQ GL2450HM http://
I'm not sure what to pick for my power supply and case (although I'll prefer aluminum casing). I'll also appreciate some feedback and advice.
I'm planning to spend about $1000, but I know I've exceeded that and I'm flexible if it's under $1500.

    If you want a good aluminum case, this thing is built like a rock.

    Also its not aluminum, it's painted steel.

    Do you know if it handles heat well? Also, do you know if it can fit the H100 cooling system Link? In the video on the page, it mentions that the H100 needs to have extra space (I can't make out what he says exactly).
  3. I have it for my computer, the 5 fans keep it pretty frosty. And I believe it will, I've seen pictures of H100's in it. It would definitely be a tight fit if it were to fit though.
