Micro ATX budget build w/moderate game potential.

Building a budget PC for my wife, whose PC is dreadfully outdated. Totals up to $485 using the power supply from her current PC. Going Micro because she wants smaller form factor, but I still want it to handle a game or two. Here is what I've put together. My biggest concern is the mobo which I'm unsure of? Also, this case does fit the ATX size power supply. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

i3 - 3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3ghz
ASRock H77M LGA 1155 intel H77
Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600
Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit low profile
Seagate 500 GB HD
Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX case
This OCZ Power Supply is coming out of her old PC

A side not, I may consider a full size GPU considering the case will fit up 13.7 inch card. Of course then I get the upgrade bug and the budget build goes out the window.

Thanks for the input.

Its good , it works.
The 2 pci slots on the mb may not be all that useful . Other H77 chipset mb's might have another pci-e slot . Whether thats important or not is up to you
