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

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE TJ09-SW Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

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:
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE SST-TJ07-B Black 4.0mm ~ 8.0mm uni-body aluminum outer frame, 2.0mm aluminum body ATX Full Tower Computer Case

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.
