So I finally got my build together, now the only thing left is to get a nice case and put it all together.
I found some candidates, but I kinda dont know anything about cases , so I tought you guys could help :D 
Here is my build:

Motherboard: S-1150 ASUS Z87-K
GPU: ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5
PSU: CORSAIR CX600 V2
CPU: INTEL Core i5 - 4670K
RAM: 2x DDR III Kingston 4GB 1600MHZ HyperX
HDD:3,5" SATA 6Gb/s Seagate Desktop HDD, 1 TB

I kinda wondered if it all fits together?

And for the case I can choose between

1.http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=c_000...
2.http://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=c_000...
3.http://www.lc-power.de/index.php?id=385
4.http://www.lc-power.de/index.php?id=308

And for those lc power, Im not even sure if they have them here, so in the wors case scenario I would have to choose from the two thermaltakes..

What case can fit all my parts?
Whats diffrence between the cases?
Sorry for so much questions, thanks in advance
cant wait to start it building :D

Do you want an additional CPU cooler? If not, every ATX case will carry your components. If yes, then you have to look for the dimensions of both the cooler and the case. In your case (dat pun) all three cases you selected (the Thermaltake ones are both the same) are large enough for a cooler with a height of 160mm.
Thus you could pick the case you like.

Differences:
- Thermaltake V4: I assume it has a quieter fan than the LC-Power fans, but not neccessarily. Can mount up to six fans.
- LC-Power PRO-923B: PSU at the top of the case, may result in worse temperatures, but has one USB 3.0 port (may not be interesting for you, but in maybe in the future). Can mount only three fans.
- LC-Power PRO-918B: Has two USB 3.0 ports. Can mount up to seven fans.

Well I was going to overclock the CPU later, so yeah, Ill need a CPU cooler
is 16 cm a good size for CPU coolers, or will I have problems later finding a nice cooler :D ?
And about the USB ports, I dont quite get it, do they have to match the ones on the motherboard?
thanks mate
and sorry, its my first build, so I kinda dont know a thing :D

It's hard to find a good cooler which exceeds 16cm, so you're good.

No, since the Mainboard you selected supports USB 3.0, you don't have to worry about anything. It's only important if you use USB 3.0 devices like thumb drives, external HDD's or similar. If you don't have any, you can pick either case. Also you can upgrade your case with USB 3.0 ports later (e.g. card readers).
