1) ram - why don't you go for 32? I've recently realised Doom for example loves to gobble up 16GB. Anything else (eg db server) running, it was not enough. And two 16GB sticks are always better - if you think you'll need more anytime soon.
2) case; my experience: I've tried a 90degree sideways positive pressure one a good while ago. And I'm still using it. (Silverstone Fortress ft02) I think I'll buy another very similar next. It's a full size case, so space inside is great and very neat to attach things - because it's all on the top. With the positive pressure comes less dust inside, even though the grilles are all on the top. Maybe have a look.
3) Asus is what I prefer (mobo mainly), maybe just brand loyalty, but I've seen less issues with these than gigabyte - altho my real experience in this area lies very far back, when I've worked in a hardware shop. I do not have recent statistics. Maybe both brands have lower and higher end stuff and the higher end is all good - altho for $140 that one does not look to be in that category. A finicky mobo can be very annoying (eg if slots aren't aligned to the tenth-millimeter and the gfx or ram card occasionally does not connect properly...). I stick to higher end mobos for this reason, even if half of its features I will never use.

Should be a good monitor. You are less of a nerd so you would probably like that better than 144Hz 1080P anyway, so much nicer to look at.
