my first time computer build
So this is my first build I'd like to make, and I am posting this on here for second opinions on any part of the build or apparent problems I am unaware of.

This build follows the tier 2 guide found here. Besides the motherboard, and case everything is found on the tier list page.

Goals of PC- a system that allows me to play current and upcoming games, don't need max settings, just good playability and trying to keep it below $700, also a case that says "I'm made for gaming".

CPU
Intel Core i5-2400 3.1-3.4GHz Turbo Quad-Core($190)

Motherboard
BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel ($95)

Ram
G.Skill 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333MHz($23)

Videocard
Radeon HD 6870 1GB($160)

Storage
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB SATA III($85)

Optical Drive
LG SATA 22X DVD Burner($16)

Power Supply
Silverstone 500W 80PLUS($60)

Case
NZXT Guardian Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Case 921RB-BL ($70)

so I'm at $699 total. However the case was not on the list, and I just want to make sure the case is kosher compatibility/size wise with the other parts. Also I noticed that the storage on amazon could be found refurbished for $55. That would save me $30, would there be any objections to using one of those?

But besides that if anyone has suggestions please let me know, Thanks!
