Please get a better PSU, you're spending a good amount of money on this PC :) 

For cases I think you should consider the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2

What's the difference? Your recommendation is more expensive and I don't see any difference?

Just suggesting it, I think the case you have chosen is fine too. Definitely change the PSU, though.

I have to say that is pretty shit. Plus you didn't take in the fact that I needed a keyboard and speakers. Lastly I don't really need 8-core CPU as i'm only gaming on it. Sorry.
