Hi, I'm planning on buying a new CPU and I'm having a hard time choosing the right psu and case for me.
I don't plan on overclocking, using additional cooling systems, and doing SLI. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Processor: Intel Core i7-950 (3.06G) 8mb LGA1366
Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 1TB
Video Card: Geforce GTX 460 1GB
Memory: Kingston 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 (3 pcs)
DVDRW: LG 22x GH22LS50 SATA LightScribe
PSU: ?
Casing: ?

PS. Btw, I have tried some PSU calculations on the net and I learned that I need a minimum of 550W. :D 
Sorry for not putting on the links because I am on rush today.

cases are all about personal taste, get the one you like looking at

as for a PSU, a 500w+ from enermax, silverstone, antec, corsair, seasonic would do the trick.

for the money, you will have a hard time beating this unit and you can run the GTX 460 in SLI with it
