Seeking for Case & PSu

Hi,
First time to build up a computer, wonder which case&PSu works best and for the best price!

Should I avoid Ultra? Their product are really cheap but I've heard some negative comments on them...

My specs are:

i69-3570k;
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H
Seagate 2TB, 7200RPM
Corsair 8GB (2x 4GB)
2gb Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 Video

Off the topic, I think I've done all the job besides a 64-bits OS? Do I need to buy additional fans or liquid cooler or something? I'm not really a overclocking fan...And do I need other stuffs to build a computer?
Any suggestions regarding my PC would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

    Hi FRee_ARouND,

    As far as PSU is concerned, you'll be fine with a 600w PSU. I think you should get this one---
    SilverStone Strider 600w---$66. After rebate, $56---
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256071

    This PSU features Active Power Correction, 80+ Bronze Certification and a single strong +12v rail delivering 42A. This PSU and brand both are reliable and will last for years. All in all, this PSU will be ideal for you as long as you don't Crossfire it.

    You can get a cheap yet decent Gaming Case from BitFenix. This case has received many recommendations from various sites and is an unbeatable product for such a low price---
    BitFenix Merc Alpha Mid Tower---$40---
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256071

    This Case has enough space, allows 7 additional fans, has Power Supply placement at bottom and has an elegant look.

    You said you're not an overclocking fan then why are you buying the K series CPU. If you're not into overclocking, then you better be off with Intel Core i5 3450 CPU which delivers superb performance in gaming and will also save you some money.

    No, if you are not a fan of overclocking, then you won't need water cooling but adding more fans will provide better air-flow without costing much but at stock you don't need them either.

    It's an excellent case. Comes with two 120mm fans(front & Rear) & one 140mm top exhaust fan. Its got a dust filter for the front panel & for the PSU as well.

    The SeaSonic S12II 520w would be quite sufficient for your rig

    Still the 3570k is a good choice, since you have the ability/ option to OC it in the future(which is quite easily done). For that a Decent budget cooler like the
    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo(or even the 212+) would suffice.

  3. That's pretty decent. It's hard to give suggestion for you because you didn't put a maximum budget. But I would like to suggest these:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008

    Basically the best for me :)

    As for the Cooling question, if you don't want to Overclock there is no need to buy any aftermarket cooler. But if you plan to Overclock I suggest buying an aftermarket cooler because Ivy Bridge goes hot when Overclocked. Here is the one that I will get (I know it's expensive but will cool your CPU really great):
