    I'm the same way - I never buy cases that "look pretty" because the manufacturers that make them most of the time are the same ones that I always try to advise against - like Raidmax and Apevia. They're more likely to fall apart on you than anything else.

    Try this setup:

    Case: Fractal Design Arc MIDI - $109.99
    PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX750 - $104.99 ($20.00 MIR)
    Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 - $139.99
    CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - $249.99
    Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $34.99
    RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 8GB 1333MHz - $42.99
    HD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda ST - $99.99
    Optical: Lite On Bulk DVD Burner - $17.99
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 - $259.99

    Total: $1,060.91 - $20.00 MIR = $1,040.91

    A little bit over budget and it doesn't include an NVIDIA card - I'm not recommending the 560TI until it's Keppler replacement is out - but the Radeon 7850 is currently the best GPU in it's class.

    The case is fine, not sure I'd trust that PSU.
