I dont know what sort of power supply i should get. Also, does it really matter what case i get? I want one that at least has a place to see inside the computer with some lights, hopefully green or blue. IF you see some things that wouldnt work, plz tell me. Also, hoping to play the latest games and to use it for about a year. Will it see me thru? Thanks for the help.

Thats a nice system i only see 1 problem though. I suggest a different board. Something like a MSI Neo4 or Neo4 Platinum. Try getting a 400-450watt power supply. Antec have nice power supply's. Just dont go spending over 80$ on one.

Finished With TF.

MSI TurboStream 450W ATX12V 450W Power Supply 90V ~ 132Vac or 180V~264Vac UL, TUV, CB, CSA

Is that a good power supply? Also how about this case:
