That PSU is junk. Stick with Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX. Get 500w.

Get an i5 3350p and an h77 motherboard.

That GPU is in store only, there are 7850s that cheap online though.

That case is in-store only too.

get 1600mhx RAM for sure. That RAM is slow.

Best solution

If you can extend your budget to 800 dollars, then get the 7870 instead which is better than the 7850.
