First build looking for opinions and suggestions

As said this is my first build and i'm looking for some input and suggestions. My friend who was helping me got in some trouble and won't be able to help for a while so i'm turning to the trusty internet. Anyways i'd really appreciate a suggestion for a case too as i don't really know which one would be best of the parts i've picked. I'm not looking to spend a lot on the case and really don't mind what it looks like. Window would be nice. I'd like to stay with a mid tower if possible but i also want to be able to fit a second GPU in it.

Also apologies if my link below doesn't work, not very experienced with forums.

Also need to know what you want to do with it, gaming,video editing etc etc. budget , resolution. you get the idea more info = better advice.

Thanks. Budget isn't really much of an issue although i don't wanna go to far past $1500. 1080P is fine for resolution and i actually bought my monitor already (144hz). Gaming is gonna be 95% of what I'm going to be using it for. There's a few things i'm thinking about getting today that are on limited time sales, one being a Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDRE1TB. Is there anything i need to keep in mind, if i got that today, going forward as far as compatibility? Also do most cases have trays for the internal memory or do you normally buy that separately? I would appreciate advice for the cooling too, if what have selected will be good enough to keep all this cool. Thanks in advance and thanks for replying.

Oh and this is the case i'm leaning towards right now. Do you see there being any issues with this one and the rest of my build?
