hi
I'm making a desktop for the first time, so please suggest changes if any required. Thanks in advance :)

CPU: i5 4590
GPU: msi GTX 970 4gb ddr5 OC edition
Mother Board: msi z97 pc mate LGA 1150 intel
RAM: 2x corsair vengeance 4 gb
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB
PSU: Antec VP550p(550 W)

Also,
1) will a cheaper motherboard work for my build?(I'll only be using 1 gtx 970)
2)Please suggest a nice cabinet which can fit all this stuff and is not too expensive.
3)will i be able to use a ssd in the future with this motherboard?

you dont need Z97 mobo for non K CPU get H97. i would change the ram and get rid of this overpriced corsair ram. and change PSU for XFX 550w. and with money saved you can get an SSD

EDIT: and you can change you HDD to seagate have alot higer failure rate than WD

if this is in you price range get this if not just remove SSD
