nzxt source 210 (for cheapness) or go with nzxt phantom or antec 302
asus crosshair V formula for mobo it's awesome (this might be expensive but it's worth it)
corsair ax650w/750w 80plus gold or any corsair 650-750w 80plus bronze(i suggest getting a 750w 80plus gold psu from seasonic or corsair, it's worth it if in any case you might want to add other stuff in your system, better be ready than never)
amd sapphire 6850/6870 should be at 150-180$ price range
