  1. If you go with a 500W PSU then you should be more then fine. It's more then plenty for your needs.
  2. I would go with an Asus M5A97 R2 LE and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152049 . That power supply is 80+ bronze which means it will run more efficiently than one that is not. You shouldn't really get one that isn't.

    Raidmax is trash. 80 Plus is only a measure of efficiency not quality. See here:

    A system with an HD 7730 in it needs a recommended 350w power supply.

    There are no cheaper, quality units that low in wattage so you would be looking at a Corsair 430CX or Antec VP 450. If you list where you are buying from I can find you a good deal.

    Did you seriously just recommend a raidmax PSU? You do realize they are massive piles of low quality garbage right? Even their new 80+ gold rated units are subpar and when tested can't achieve rated wattage or efficiency. Raidmax is one of the worst PSU brands around.
  5. Here's a couple options.
    Antec VP450 more than enough to run the system and is decent quality.

    Another good choice would be this 400w Seasonic

    If you think you may get a more powerful video card later here's a good budget 500w unit.
