I need to upgrade the graphics card and power supply on my computer. Currently playing Tera Online and noticing some pretty bad lag with the card the CPU came with (GT 530). I'm wondering what would be the best choice for my set-up, info below as well as what I'm currently thinking about. Hoping someone has some recommendations or can tell me if these parts won't work - I've never upgraded a machine before.

The total price for these two are in your budget but you end up with a better video card and if you want the psu from Amazon then you can certianly do that and get the video card from Newegg or see if Amazon has the same card for the same or lower price. Either way you would be better off with the 560Ti then the 560.
