You can get a way better PC for that money. What will you be using this PC for? If mainly for gaming then you won't need an i7, a i5 4670K will be fine.

You don't need two SSDs in RAID O the gain is minimal. Better to go with a single large SSD rather than two in RAID 0.

With the saved money you should try to upgrade your GPU to a GTX 780.

Where do you live? Where will you buying your parts from?

Yep,it'll mainly be for gaming but i'd prefer a mid tower (due to space constrain in my house), thus,a GTX 780 wouldnt fit

what would you recommend?

living in singapore,trying to get a gaming mid tower pc for as low as possible (yet possible to play high-end games like battlefield 4 with high FPS).

goona buy PC parts from PCthemes (link to their parts and prices:https://www.dropbox.com/s/in6z6g0en4yjf0e/Pc%20Theme%20...)

Can't you accommodate extra 5 Inches in you room?

To my knowledge the GTX 780 is not much larger than the GTX 770 if at all. Can you provide us dimensions you can accommodate? There are a lot of unique cases out there like the Cooler Master HAF XB.

i can accommodate dimensions of 17.55 (width) x 39.98 (Depth) x 36.77(height). not strictly this dimensions,could possible fit only about 7.2cm in width.
my main concern (and reason for getting a mid tower) is cos of my current wooden table im using.scared that putting any bigger tower on it could break it (since the table is over a decade old) and it would be a bit inconvenient for me to place a bigger tower on the floor as i usually play games with headphones on and the cord length of the headphones might be too short

What units are those? I think then your problem lies with the weight of the case. I wil look into a build as soon as you mention the units.

BTW: You can buy headphone wire extenders for next to nothing (2-5$).

im sorry but i dont quite understand what you mean by 'what units are those''
if it helps,i'm looking to replace my HP Pavilion 500-130d

if by units,you mean measurements in terms of mm,it'll be 247.5mm x 399.8 x 367.7 mm (WxDxH)
