You can fit an ATX psu in that case, nothing wrong with SFX just hope it comes with an adapter plate or that buying one still keeps cost below a comparible ATX.

Yes, it comes with an adapter plate.

Would strongly recommend getting a second stick of ram to enable dual channel. The sfx psu would give some future flexibly to move to a smaller case so could be a good option.

Yes it does (or it should, manufacturers website says it does at any rate)

Would you guys recommend any other cases to go with those components? can't find any nz supplier of the Silverstone PS08B (Black) MicroATX Mid Tower Case and i heard it doesn't have a great design. Not too worried on price actually just whatever's sufficient.

There's so many options out there, it really comes down to you picking one that you like and has the features you want.

I have used the PS08B. Avoid. it is very tight and not well laid out. If you have any 3.5" drives, they overhang the motherboard and mostly sit over the motherboard power connector which is annoying. If you are only using 2.5" drives, it will be a little better. It is also really plasticy and tinny.

 

I would recommend spending a little more on a case and getting something better. Maybe something like this: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/CHAZAL3001/Zalman-R1-ATX-Mid-Tower-PC-Case-NO-PSU-side-Window. There are plenty of other good case options out there too.
