I am not sure I'd suggest such a pricy board, maybe go for a P45 like the Asus P5Q or the Gigabyte EP45-DS3R. Unless of course you plan to use the X48 board to a point where the P45 wouldn't allow u.

For the Power Supply, I'd suggest a quality one such as the Corsair 650TX or maybe a PC Power and Cooling 610W.

As for the case, its really a matter of preference. You need a few basics, good airflow, enough space. Afterwards it depends. I like it quiet and a bit more classic. Here are a few suggestions, based on my likings or other people's likings.
A classic look I like, quiet with good airflow: Antec P182
Another classic look I like, quiet with fairly good airflow: Antec Solo
Usually a popular one: Antec 900
A fairly good cheap case: Coolermaster Centurion 534
Other than that, Lian Li are very well regarded, but they are a bit pricy. A good thing to do would be to find a few cases you like and then to compare them or to post them here.
Help is never laughed at.... Like that old rig you're rockin' ;)
