So you want us to recommend a case, video card, keyboard and mouse?

What will this computer be used for?

How long do you want it to last for?

Can you post your other parts so that we can see if they are compatible/good for your build.

I wouldn't go with that case, I'd go with the thermaltake.

I recieved that case, had everything plugged in(Yes it was correct).
And the fan caught on fire due to it overloading itself and almost caught my whole brand new computer on fire.

Had to send everything back.

Save yourself the trouble.

Plus the Xigmatek Rifle won't fit in your case with the case panel on the side, you have to remove the side fan anyways.

I would of gone for the aurora's or the cosmos. Nevertheless you'll need one fan for the exhaust. Those intake/side fans are going to keep your components nice and cool
