GEt a PSU from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic. Coolermaster PSUs are trash.

The rest will work just fine.

That will work just fine. I'd swap out the power supply for a Corsair CX series though. Better quality, and still a very good value. Here's a website for ya: Check it out. I couldn't find the case, so I added a different one, I also changed out your video card for what I believe to be a better one; faster core clock and comes with 4 free games.
