For your needs go AMD with integrated graphics. You will see the same performance asw what you have listed.

AMD A8-5500 Trinity 3.2GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU $104

GIGABYTE GA-F2A55M-DS2 FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $59

Patriot Signature 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 $49

Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB 450W $39

Your hard drive is fine and DVD.

Try these cases:

ZALMAN ZM-T2 Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower $39

COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower $34

That will cost you about $300 and serve your needs.
