Another problem came up though. I forgot the location of my OCZ power supply.

Damn...

And my cousin told me that the Phantek casing is good enough for me.
yeah Phanteks P400 is good enough

Corsair 400c is hard to cable manage if you are a first time builder

How about Meshify C since your budget is $149? Currently i'm using it and the size is just right with good air flow. Quite a fair bit of good review (you can watch the 2nd youtube link for the top cases in 2017).

Some issues people might have is the dark tinted panel (which isn't a problem for me becos of my blink blink LED fans) and the front panel air mesh which traps alot of dust (maybe my room is dusty, but hey, at least it is fulfilling its purpose).

I built my PC in January this year. Been using a zotac gtx 1060 6gb. It was able to handle everything i threw at it, like bf1, elder scrolls online, doom. Able to play on ultra at 1080p on these titles at minimum 60fps. With that, i'm optimistic that it can tahan next yr's games.

Graphics - MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Gaming X ($274)

SSD - Sandisk PLUS 240GB 2.5" SSD ($116)

HDD - Toshiba 1TB 7200RPM SATA ($53)

OK. Now I want to know whether Ryzen is good enough for gaming or I should stick to Coffee Lake instead?

These two processor types are driving me crazy.

My new PC is purely for ultimate gaming. That's it. Video editing. Maybe once in a blue moon.

CPU does not matter much nowadays. Whether coffee lake or ryzen, depends on budget and preference.

The one that has shot up dramatically are the GPUs. Only Asus and Gigabyte's gfx are available. ...
