The case is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and the mobo is: http://www.microcenter.com/product/387554/Z77_Extreme4_...

The case said its ATX PS2 / EPS 12V (optional ) and i have no clue what that means. I just need a clarification.

Any standard PSU with an 8-pin EPS12V connector, which is pretty much all of them. Depending on the rest of your build, I'd recommend something 500W+ from the brands in my sig.

Dont worry the case has nothing to do with it .. they are saying that there is an optional power supply that comes with it if you want.

try to get the Haswell Z87 why are you going for z77 ? it is the same price and z77 are old ...

Not really, Z77 Extreme4 is $135 vs $145 for Z87 Extreme4, and $190 vs $200 for i5-3570K and i5-4670K. You save $20, and OCed they're about as fast - Haswell doesn't OC very well.

Still, newer tech has its advantages - they're just very small in this case.

yes really .. there are 30-50$ price discount combos on all z87 and haswell cpu when you buy them together.

I know what I am talking about.

IIRC those discounts also apply to Ivy.

EDIT: Yup, it just knocked $30 off the Z77 Extreme4 when I added it to the cart with a 3570K.

That costs more than the ones he linked for a slightly inferior product, but it should work fine.
