My System Specs

Default

Case wise: unless Antec updated the line-up, it has a USB 3.0 cable for the front panel, which you then have to run throught the back (feeding it through the water cooling holes) of the case and then plug it in the motherboard's external USB 3.0 slots; now, if the case has a proper 20-pin (interal) USB 3.0 interface then all is good.

Power Supply wise: 800W PSU is an overkill for the hardware you have, unless you are planing on adding a lot more hard drives and an additional video card, the 700W PSU version (Newegg.ca - CORSAIR Gaming Series GS700 700W ATX 12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply) is plenty.

RAM wise: with the 8 GB there is no issue, however, if you ever plan on adding additional Corsair Vengeance memory (by populating all four DIMMs) then I would recommend the LP (low profile) version of the Corsair memory as you will have interference issues with the Cooler Fan.
