Cases are subjective - i wouldnt tough a Rosewill anything. Others my swear by them...

I have the Corsair 500R and it's amazing. I've also owned a Lian Li in the past, but they are expensive.

Antec and Silverstone also make really good cases.

Also, good job choosing a modular PSU. It really really cuts down on the amount of cabling.

that being said, take the time to do proper cable routing. you certainly dont want the case to be a rat's nest!

dunno what FF will be like to run at max settings but im sure the 660Ti would be ok, if it doesnt seem to pack enough oomph for ya, you could always return it and get a better card.

For simcity i dont think its that computer intensive because they limited the size of the cities so that it would play on older machines

no need for a sound card, i would get at least 2 case fans and probably go 650Watt PSU minimum.

I would suggest getting a case with a fan controller TBH, but eventually your going to need one.
I would stick with the PSU and go to Windows 7 64bit and why not a 2TB Seagate SATA? Pretty much only like 10-30 bucks more

1TB is going to be more than enough. I have an external with most of my stuff anyway, so I can't see the need for extra space. I am going with Windows 8 because I just like where all that is going, plus I'll be getting the Logitech Touchpad as well for that. I'll look around for similar cases that I find pleasing to my eye..

Will this case be suitable?
