Hey Guys!

So,as the title indicates,I need advice regarding my new config,specifically ''my" computer case.

Here is my components for the new computer:

-Intel Core i5-3350p

-MSI B75MA-P45

-EVGA GTX 650ti 2GB DDR5

-Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB

-Corsair Vengeance 4GB RAM 1600 Mhz or 8GB RAM 1600 Mhz

-Corsair CX 430

What you need to know,is that I am on a budget,so I cannot afford a hyper-super-duper case,wih all bells and whistles,but I want some solid build quality,consumer-friendly price,and enough room for all this stuff.Also,it is not a problem,if it looks cool:) 
And maybe in the future,I will effect some additional things into this rig,for example: ssd,new hdd,new optical drive(I currently own one).

So this is it,I hope you guys can help me out,I'd really appriciate it,and please,do not criticise my build,it is my second build ever,so instead of it,leave some tips here,if you want,to make this build better,but remember,I am on a budget,so this is why I chose a bit "older" video card,and not overclockable i5.For the motherboard,I chose it,because it is somewhat cheap,and has got all the neccessary things,that I need,nothing extra super stuff.

And maybe it is not important,but I'm from Hungary(Central-Europe),prices here are a bit higher,than in the USA for example.

Thank you for any help in advance,have a nice day!

Hey, i would recommend you this case :)  http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-case-300r and a power supply for you,because CX has a bad reputation http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-hive...
Also gtx 650ti is a little bit overpriced, so i would choose 7850,because the difference is quite big and the price drifference is about 50$, here is a benchmark of both cards : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/778?vs=781

I am giving you US links just to show you the parts, find them in your shop,they should cost just a little bit more

For this i must disagree, they all cost more than my suggested,and they are almost the same at size and have the very similiar performance at temperature test
