Hello, I am looking to find a good case with decent airflow and power supply that will support a dual core gaming rig using the following parts:
Phenom II X2 550, Sapphire Radeon HD 4850, 4 GB DDR3 1333, 1 TB hard drive, 1 sata cd/dvd burner.

My price range is between $50 and $60 Canadian dollars for the both, whether they are together or separate. I will be buying through Newegg.ca

I would appreciate any help offered as there are a wide range of cases, and power supplies, so it is somewhat difficult for someone with no experience in purchasing these to find one that will work right.

i would suggest spending just a little more, $50-60 would be enough for a good PSu, but not both

Found many different cases, usually for every positive thing said about them, there is something negative, sometimes small, sometimes bigger. Of these ones, does one stand out to be better? Also I am wondering, what size of power supply would be suitable for my build?

It's 450W with 22A on the 12V rail, not super good, but enough for the OP's system, though I'm not sure whether it has a PCI-E connector...

Alternatively he could get a really cheap case and buy a PSU for 40 dollars.
