get this

hard drive. not 3tb but realistically you cant fill them up


case. its white but matches the build theme i got going along

now for your build, this is what id change

-you dont need that much wattage
-the i5 is a better gaming CPU
-there are better SSDs
-fast ram is useless
-a pile of ram is useless for gaming
-690s are overkill. go grab a 7970 for high res instead
- i wouldnt get one of those panels, given warranty can be questionable.
-if money is no option, i can tack another 300 dollars to the rig and it wont affect performance one bit

the case isnt crap so its fine. just the fractal is a better option in my opinion
