You won't need a 900W PSU for that build
Where are you buying from?

Personally, the best case I have ever owned by far is this one, but the black version - SILVERSTONE TJ09-SW Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W

The Lian Li A70B is a nice case, I'd get that.

Or if you want a case with more features you could look into the Corsair 800D. Or if you really want to spend a wad of money I like this: - SILVERSTONE SST-TJ07-B Black 4.0mm ~ 8.0mm uni-body aluminum outer frame, 2.0mm aluminum body ATX Full Tower Computer Case
EVGA E758 A1 | Core i7 920 @ 4ghz | 6GB DDR3 1600 OCZ Gold | XFX 6870 CF | Corsair TX850 | Cooler Master HAF 932 | Water Cooled

I live in england so dollers make no sense to at all and the 900W PSU is alot cheaper than the corsair HX850 and i have read some reviws that it is just as good as for the case its just too expensive

I'm guessing you meant he Silverstones are over your price bracket...both are excellent, have done builds with both.

As for the K62 vs the Lian-Li....I'd go Lian-Li hands down any day of the week, excellent quality with every case.
