I would look at getting a cheaper case and a better video card like

I actually already have the VGA. Just posted it to for the compatibility check with the motherboard.

I know the case is on a bit of the pricy side but after years working with mid Tower I kinda want something specious now. I have a habbit of jamming a lot of stuffs in my case and the smaller cases always make me wish I have a larger one.

Then it looks good. 750W is a little overkill though so you could get a cheaper PSU if you want.

The only "problem" I see is that the video card you already have is not very good. Everything else is fine though, pretty standard. Really comes down to i5+sensible mobo+8gb memory+good video card=win.

One last question. I have an external USB DvD drive, can I use it to install the OS onto the fresh drive? Or I need an internal drive to do it?
