planing a retro build with a 550ti and an older nzxt case, what should my parts be?

Budget (including currency): $150

Country: 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: emulation, low esports titles

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 550ti and older nzxt case

 

if someone could list different nzxt cases from 200-2014 that would help majorly.

 

(pc if the parts get here in time): ryzen 7 3700||gigabyte gtx 1070|| 16 gb ddr4|| SanDisk Ultra 3D 512GB 2.5 ssd||MSI b450m pro-vdh max||2013 corsair cx750m|| hp pavilion case||

NZXT has a ton of cases from around that time but keep in mind they don’t exactly look like current NZXT cases but kinda old. 
Id look for any of the NZXT Tempest options from 2010-2012 or so. They’re nice cases with good airflow and kinda fit the overall vibe of pc parts from the time.

Otherwise you’re basically just talking about a mid tier sandy bridge build. Pick up any Z68 motherboard, put a 2500k on it and OC it until it dies.
