PC cabinet? I'm gonna go ahead and presume you mean a case.

Get a NZXT Gamma Classic, and one extra each of a 120mm fan and a 140mm, for front intake and top exhaust - it's gonna be cheap, and have better cooling than any comparable case. (Though you'll have to make or buy a dust filter for the intake.)

As for the PSU, I'd get a Corsair HX-650.

CM 690 II Advanced.

I'd get a quality 650W assuming you want a good "high" end GPU.

You can get away with a 500/550W PSU, just make sure it has the appropriate amount of PCIE connectors.

Will you be using any USB 3.0 devices?

You know you can always plug them into the board.
