DELL XPS 8700 rebuild?

I plan to sort of rebuild my Dell XPS 8700 desktop... I would like a new case, new psu, and a new GPU and possibly a new cooler! I plan on getting these items

GPU: GTX 970 superclocked 4gb  

Case: Sentey® Bx1-4284 Plus Gaming Computer Case

PSU: Corsair CX750 750w PSU

The main thing that I am confused about is the case... I heard the motherboard may or may not fit the case properly, and I am in need of a better case, I need better cooling also due to my house being 80 degrees in the summertime... *** to *** huh? I don't feel like buying a new AC unit just to make sure my computer doesn't melt... 

So any help would be awesome, I am set on buying that PSU and GPU, but the Case is a different ball game for me... I know Dell doesn't recommend replacing cases... but I bought the computer so I want to do it! Thanks!

Thanks! - Trey [:D]

I am about to transfer an 8700 into a new case (Enermax Ostrog ECA3253-BR) and was wondering about this very issue.  Any insight you can share about figuring out the connections would be greatly appreciated!!  Thanks!

Thanks for the pic, this really helped me out today when I changed my case (chassis) and PSU. I have a 8500 model and this worked.
