What do you think about this rig, can any of these components be changed for the cheaper ones, and what is the cheapest case i can get for this setup

CPU: Intel i5-2500K 3.3Ghz - 184€
GFX: MSI Radeon HD 6870 - 142€
HDD: Hitachi 500 GB 7600RPM - 60€
DVD: Samsung SHS222 - 15€
RAM: 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 - 30€
AUDIO: ASUS Xonar - 25€
PSU: THERMALTAKE LT-500 500W - 40€
Total: 562€

By the way, i'm on a 600€ budget and i would like to overclock the i5 until 4ghz with the stock fan if possible.
Thanks in advance
