I would get a z68 motherboard and a better case, although antec 300 is a good case if you don't want a different case.

If you get a z68 board it will save power by automatically switching for integrated graphics while idling to discreet graphics while using graphics intensive programs. Also it will allow you to get a small ssd for caching. This allows for faster read/writes on your hdd.
