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.
