Building my first ITX gaming machine, what should I keep in mind?

What not-so-obvious factors should I plan for when picking my parts? Obviously the size of the GPU will be significant, but what else?

Size of GPU and possibly size of the heatsink especially if the orientation of the case has a PSU above the motherboard like a Cooler Master Elite 120/130 and some Silverstone cases like Sugo 05.

CPU heatsink clearance, GPU clearance, size of the PSU and support PSU sizes. Airflow!!!
