Power supplies that come with cases are generally bad news. Go with a Corsair CX600 and also upgrade your motherboard to an H77 - it's only a $10 difference and you'll get more expansion out of it.

I edited with a new build, should I still change the motherboard?

I don't like B75 because it includes ports that you will never use - mainly parallel and serial ports - which haven't been used in like 10 years. Go for an H77 - you'll get USB 2.0 and 3.0, among other things.
