So I was recently upgrading my computer and decided to help my little brother create his own computer, first giving him what i replaced which is:  a new 750W power supply i ordered but didn't use, a usb keyboard that came standard with Ibuypower,and an R9 AMD 280 Graphics card


Was not trying to get fancy just getting him what he needs to at least play decently so i got the basics on the options:   http://www.newegg.com/Product/BOM.aspx?Item=N82E16813701026


but my main issue is just knowing if the case would be big enough for all this




Please let me know if it will or any other possiblly better options....and yes I would prefer it be in blue and lights are optional as i can add that later

Yeah you will be good with a mid tower case. You should be able to fit most of the newer giant cards in there as well. I have a mid tower Coolermaster and fit a GTX 980 in it.
