That PSU receives my HELL NO, see the little red switch? Thats a very bad sign. Get one from corsair, antec(not the basiq), seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, or OCZ. If you see a little red switch on any power supply skip it and move on. If you are curious why you dont skimp on a PSU watch this video from corsair, its rather entertaining.

if you edit into the format linked to by jbakerlent it will make it much easier to help you, also link to the parts please.

Check my "Recommend Builds by Usage" thread in my signature. I think my budget build fits with your needs, just based on your original post.
