I'd check out BFG 550watt 80+ certified psu for 69$ after MIR, and LG (Cav) optical drive for same price. I second the HD by cmichael and a different PSU. First gen phenoms were nothing compared to phenom II.
That centurion 5 case on new egg is about 50$, so getting the BFG would be pretty comparable in price. Don't know too much about who makes the cooler master psu, but most will tell you to stick to name brands & 80+ cert. such as corsair, pc power & cooling, FPS, and seasonic. Don't just get a combo b/c it's all included, research the psu b/c it could fry your entire build.
