First off, what countr are you in?
Secondly, lose the PSU you have listed and get a quality unit manufactured by Seasonic, XFX, Corsair or Antec......anything 600W or over will suit your needs (750W if you are going to overclock).
And to answer your question about hard drives, I would get a 120/128 GB SSD (Samsung 840 Pro series) for your OS and any programs/games you want to load quick (256 GB if you can afford it) and then get a 500 GB or 1 TB HDD from Western Digital or Seagate for your data storage.
