I'm just not sure what to go with for the case/motherboard. I'm thinking a smaller mini-tower would be nice if I can find a good suitable motherboard. Also, any suggestions on the components I have selected so far would be great! Thanks!

- For the PSU, XFX is a very good brand. But do not go with a cheap model. You should check for a model with a higher certification and modular cabling. It is a bit more expensive but well worth the money.
The GTX 760 would be worth another 75$ if you so chose. If money is tight go for a good mechanical storage drive like a western digital caviar black or similar, and pick up a SSD later.
EVGA, ASUS, Gigabyte all make great GPUs.
Case is largely a matter of preference. If this is a first build, bigger cases are much easier to deal with. I have the Antec Nine Hundred and I absolutely love it. It has great air flow, and plenty of room for a big heatsink and 11" graphic card, etc.
For motherboards, I'm a gigabyte fanboy... The Z87 D3H is a solid choice I'm sure. If you need more features, you can spend a little extra for them. Gigabyte is notoriously long lasting and mostly idiot proof - hence the reason I'm a return customer.
