So I'm about to start ordering parts on this build. I already own the graphics card and 1tb hdd. Mostly I need advice on motherboard and case. I'm willing to spend around $200 on mobo, but not sure if I'll benefit from anything more than the asrock. As for the case, I'd actually prefer a full size case, but really unsure of which one is best. I like the looks of the switch 810 and the nzxt phantom. I was considering the cooler master HAF X earlier.

Here's the build I'm considering

heres what i would get. the mushkin chronos deluxe 240gb and the crucial m4 256gb are about as good. i just chose the crucial since it was 10 dollars cheaper

I'd like 16gb of ram, to be on the safe side (for 3dsmax, work with Unity and other engines and music making). I'd also like 2 stick of 8gb so that I'm able to upgrade to 3gb later.

16gb is still more than enough for current uses. 32gb is for extreme usage for photoshop. nevertheless, i will configure it
