How is the 500w psu in this case?
Im planning on building a build with:
-AMD A8-5600k APU
-Corsair Vengence DDR3 8gb 1600mhz
-MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 MOBO
-1 Optical Drive

Also if you have a case with a good PSU please let me know :)  Thanks in advance!

Not that good, most decent Power supply vendors would call this a 400W supply at best, only 360W on the 12volt rail.

Purchase the case without the supply and pick up something like the corsair builder series CX500 if you are on a budget. XFX 550W if you want quality and longevity.

Antec is well known for making decent power supplies, you can look at some of their cases.

However, something like Cooler Master Elite 430 + CX500 would only total about $75 versus the $60 case/supply you were looking at.

You don't really need 500W either, you coud go with a CX430 and be fairly well off, but certainly more then a no-name 360W (Cooler Master is not known for their supplies, and are often off the shelf junk with a cooler master sticker, though I have used many of their cases.)
