I changed you up to a Haswell and found a nice Z87 gigabyte board for it. Changed the PSU to something good that isn't liable to blow up with gaming uses. As for the case, I don't think you can get much better then that Rosewill I chose for the price.

May I ask what is wrong with Corsair PSUs? Or maybe just that one in specific? I have always heard that Corsair makes great PSUs and are some of the best on the market today. My friend has that exact same PSU and a pretty similar build and hasnt had any issues at all. My brother also uses a Corsair PSU in his build that he has had for over 3 years with no problems. Also +1 for the case recommendation thumb.gif didnt seem like too many people commented on that question.
