CPU - Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W
PSU - some modular 600w thing
Audio- Sound Blaster Z



Mobo - ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
This has a discount deal with the 4670k and has pretty good ratings so this one seems good



RAM - 4GB (2GBx2) OCZ PC3 12800 DDR3 1600Mhz Memory
This is a leftover from my current build. Would I be able to use it with this mobo and add 2 or 4 more GB in there?



GPU - still deciding between
GTX 780 Ti
R9 290X
GTX 780



Case - Apevia Black X-Jupiter Jr. (5 5.25, 5 3.5 bays) 2 Fans, Window, Front Audio/USB/1394/Temp
Leftover from current build. I think I want a new case instead. What are the benefits of a full vs. mid case? Suggestions?

and thanks to those who have helped in previous topics

Depends on the case, but mostly having a full case means just extra room to play around in, and better cable management options. I believe you need a full case to use some of the higher end CPU cooling options.

And your RAM should be fine.

If you want to save a little more, instead of a soundcard, you can get motherboard with better onboard sound. If you really that much audiophile though, soundcard is still marginally better.

I don't think you need full tower unless you want to go crazy with 3-4 way SLI/crossfire and using E-ATX mobo. Mid tower is more than enough. Those corsair cases are good.

I'm looking for mid-size tower suggestions then. I'll see if I find any appealing ones
