Upgrading PC Case + Power Supply !

Hello,

I'm planning to play Dota 2 on my pc, which have current configuration as follows

i3 2120 3.3 GHz
Zotac GT 630 DDR5 1GB
Corsair 4 GB
GA B75M D3H
'I know these specs are less for dota 2, so any resolution will work for me'

Now the important thing - Sometimes i play Crysis 2, And it runs nicely but after sometimes temperature increases and game becoms slow. After searching a bit, it seems i need to upgrade cooling and power supply system, so i choose those :

PC Case : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006I2H04I/?tag=pcpapi-20
PSU : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ALYOPSS/?tag=pcpapi-20

Now the question is 'Are these two parts compatible with each other AND with my pc specs?'

I have zero knowledge about PSU systems and don't know how it works. Just heard 'when PSU isn't compatible, it will burn the system'. & similar.

ANY help would be pleasure for me.

Thank you, Neue.

UPDATED : I'm planning to buy ZOTAC GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB DDR5, so will my specs be compatible with each other ?

Thank you once again. Neue

Parts are compatible with your setup, however, the cx430 psu is more than enough for your system (don't get the 600 watt psu that's linked).

Thank you for answer. I just updated my GPU, that i'm planning to buy so how much power GTX 650 Ti will take ?

The cx 430 will run the 650ti just fine. However, I would recommend getting this gpu instead (better performance+2 free games for around the same price if not cheaper) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thank you for answer. So now i just have to choose a GPU. And buy the pc case and psu.

Well, i think you have phantom 410, so how's about it ? can you tell me something about it ?

The 410 is a great case. Has lots of room to work with, good air flow, good cable-management, nice side window, etc. It's definitely a solid case and I would definitely recommend it.
