Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136320
Optical Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151171&Tpk=Samsung%20SH
(PSU is going to come with my case)

Don't bother changing my build because i have done alot of research and i am going to stick with this build.

So my question is with these listed components what size should my computer case be e.g. Mid-Tower, Full Tower etc
 
The mid-tower and full-tower designations are meaningless these days. You need an ATX case with at least one 120mm fan in the lower front that is unobstructed, to pull in air, and another 120mm fan in the upper back to remove air. This would be the minimum cooling.

Beyond that, you need adequate clearance between the front edge of the motherboard and the drive cages, and adequate depth to accommodate large CPU coolers.

There are only a few cases sold with decent power supplies. Most of them are junk. Since you like to do your own research, follow the links from my guide, in the section on PSUs.

Do you mean a Micro ATX case?
