So far I have this,

http://secure.newegg.com/Shopping/ShoppingCart.aspx?Sub...

If link doesn't work:

Fractal Design Arc Midi Black High Performance PC Computer Case w/ USB 3.0 and 3 x Fractal High Performance 140mm fans

PowerColor AX7850 2GBD5-2DH Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

ASUS P8H61-M LX PLUS (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

H60 Water Cooling Kit

Not sure what I should add to this, as well as I'm not sure what kind of micro atx power supply could fuel this system? Any insight would be helpful this will be my first build ever.

may I ask why a unlocked 2500k processor on a h61 mobo?

No reason, was just an oversight. If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Hmm if this is the case u are referring to
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
it's actually an ATX case - do u mean to have an mATX case perhaps? For those there are compact LAN party type casings which could house standard ATX form factor PSUs and mATX mobos ^^ Actually i specialize more in SFFs/mATX rigs these days

I suggest a stock build with possibly an i5 3450 and a H77 mATX board with USB/SATA 3? Stock clocks Ivy runs nice and cool :p  Things to look out for

1. Length of PSU and so size of PSU fan could be a factor in some compact case
2. Better not to skimp on PSU and make a quality one time investment which would possibly see many a GPU upgrade? I suggest a quality 550-650W 80+ bronze PSU for single GPU configs
3. Length of GPU - just like #1
4. For OCing - height of after market HSF
