Just eyeballing your components, I can't see how you're even close to $1000 - I'd guess you're closer to $600. Please post the cost of the components and let us know you're actual budget. If you have $1000, spend $1000.

Try using pcpartpicker.com. Here's an example of a build close to $1000. If I missed something, you can adjust the GPU down to help fit in the component.

I have the Antec 302 case. While it is nice and roomy, it's side panels are flimsy in that they have some flex. But it's not really a big deal. It just sits there. It's got two huge fans (120mm and 140mm), two 2.5mm areas for ssd mounting, enough hdd bays, and good cable routing from behind. My case is very tidy inside.

And the size...I thought bigger was better. But in my opinion, I would have bought a smaller case. People who have huge cases like cosmos II, wow :o Just my opinion, that's all.

I'm just going to drop this here because I don't feel like putting together a PC Part Picker list.
