What type of games are you gonna be playing? Are you gonna be playing more recent games like GTA V, Phantom PAIN, BF4 etc or older or less demandinggames like Skyrim, and CSGO? Also are you sure you would want Windows 8 or 10? I would recommend windows 7 or 10 due to Windows 8's bugginess.

Alright I'll try to whip something up for you. Would some black be okay mixed with the color scheme?

your old mobo wasn't compatible with what I had, but if you want to use that one you will have to change the processor and some other things. But this is a pretty solid build; you will be set to run all of the games you listed and demanding games for quite a while. You won't have to worry about running out of power, and you can always add another HDD or a SDD if you want more storage. Make sure you get some thermal paste; and that cpu cooler is a must, that processor can get hot. There's some sweet black Friday deals on that with promo codes, which adds up to $115 off. Even though there was a little black, I stayed with your color scheme for the most part (the color scheme was tough) I hope you like the case!
