for a budget case,912 is my suggestions-

for a little more,922 or 500r or phantom 410 are great cases-

there are also some more expensive options but i don't think you need them.

Check the galleries in homebuild and overclocking, see which cases grab your attention, I vote for an In Win Dragon rider, but what is your intended spend on a case?
And Corsairs Tx850 would power that setup fine but try building your rig into This calculator to see what wattage Psu you will need

I think you would save money f you bought all your components from scan.co.uk when you factor in all the different delivery charges.
As for a good case then i recommend either of these depending on twhat you can afford.

Argh .. hellfire stole my thunder ... All his pics are good imo , however , aestheticly speaking I'm only good with the 500r .As far as the Dragon rider goes I have to plead ignorance as far as first hand knowledge or even knowing someone who owns one but the reviews I read did say that that with the stock sidemount fan installed you couldnt get the 212 evo in ..... happy hunting

As a rough guide to your needs yeah, its about the same as any online calculator will give, I always allow headroom ofc on top of what they 'recommend' but I wouldn't use their Psu's :p 
@Rufus, you know the Dragon rider, You've seen my rig hehe but yes, there is the sidefan issue with larger heatsinks, I'd remove the sidefan anyway
if I ever did an airbuild in one

If it's not a good choice, is there anything from scan that's the same price, but better?
