So this is my build so far it is for casual gaming (I do not need high quality gaming as I don't play many graphic intensive games maybe a bit of BF every now and then but happy to drop my settings)

More looking to know about any compatability issues/ space issues with the case, etc.

Why is it better, better build quality? My main concern is fitting the cables in since it is my first build I'm not sure how much of an issue it is going to be.

What you want is a case with good airflow and with space for cables . Good cases for their price are CM 912 haf and nztx phantom 410
