This is all sounds good to me however I'm not too keen on the case, I'm' big on aesthetics and it inst too pleasing to me. (I sound like a douche but i want this computer to be sexy) Any other suggestions?

Yes. Even demanding games like BF4 Multiplayer can be easily played at Ultra settings with above 60fps. Look at this thread for more information- http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-4-graph... . Hope this helped you :)
