as the title suggests i need a psu and a case, building a gaming rig.

my other parts are as follows

CPU + motherboard Asus Maximus v-gene + i5-2500k
GPU Asus GTX 560 Ti DC II Top 1 GB
RAM Kingston PC3 10600 1333 Mhz 4gb
HDD seagate 500gb 7200 RPM Sata3
ODD Samsung sata 22x internal

so i need a psu capable of handling my overclocked cpu/gpu and also a case capable of fitting in my microATX motherboard and also decent cooling capabilities.

Case is a matter of preference really. Just go on like Newegg or something and look around and see what you like.

In terms of power, you could go with one of these depending on how much you want to spend:

You could get by with some good 500W PSU's that are much cheaper, but I'm recommending really nice higher wattage ones so in the future if you want to upgrade you wont have to worry about the power supply.
