  1. This PSU should work fine.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013&Tpk=XFX%20550

    Case, depends on you budget.
    Get a Corsair, Coolermaster HAF or NZXT Phantom case thats at your budget, cant go too wrong with that lineup.
  2. Best answer
    80+ certified PSU have different levels such as
    80+ Bronze
    ......Silver
    ......Gold
    ......Platinum

    The most efficient one would be the 80 + Platinum certified ones.
    So I'm guessing you are looking for a bronze one since its more affordable.
    One of the best Brand is Seasonic , while one of the worst is Coolermaster.

    There are many brands out there that are good as well so check this out too

    These are a few PSUs that I would recommend . They are all enough for your system
    - XFX core edition
    - Seasonic S12 II 520 watt ( bronze )
    - FSP Raider Silver 550 ( silver )
    - Rosewill Hive 550 watt ( bronze , modular , comes with a bag to place all your unwanted wires )

    What is a modular PSU ? It's like a regular power supply , but you can remove some of the cables. So you don't have to manage them all in your case. They produce the same performance as a regular one , but are usually more expensive.

    Now for the case.

    If you want something simple , check out the NZXT Source 210 Elite. It supports USB 3.0 and all your parts fit in it.
