Just an example. You can get something like this with part of what you need: - Corsair Carbide Series 400R Graphite grey and black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case

Then get something like this to add to it and give him what he wants.

again... there are other alternatives... this is just an example... some are not as expensive as others

BUT... will the mobo be able to handle all the extra devices he wants to add to it? I mean have all the I/O ports for it.

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

USB 3.0 is plenty for anything. I would get a case with 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front and use extra cash to buy any adapters you might need.
