Well, What processor do you have, or want to use? The processor dictates what motherboards can be used. You've excluded everything but the motherboard, graphics, and optical drives.

I'm going to assume here you are looking for a recommendation for a quality PSU and a mid-range graphics card.

For graphics, I don't see the need to go any better than an AMD HD7780 or an NVidia GTX 650ti.
For a PSU, I'll suggest the Corsair CX500M or XFX 550 Pro, either should perform well.

Depends upon your case, if the case allows for it, mount the PSU so that it gets fresh air into the intake fan from outside of the case. If the case does not allow for mounting that way, you'll probably want to look into increasing your case airflow
