  1.  If you don't plan to overclock, I suggest CPU-Intel Core i5 2400,
     save some money and get better video card.

    I don't know about this case but I think that PSU might be underpowered - try upping that to a 600W, maybe 700 - 750 just to be on the safe side.

    For cases try the Cooler Master HAF 912 or the Antec 300.
