That psu you want is discontinued, sorry. here is another good one by corsair

I would go for this cooler
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Direct-Contact-RR-9...
or this one
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Direct-Contact-RR-B...
and definitely get a cooler for this one even if you don't oc. The stock fan is LOUD.
What is the point of your 400gb hd?
Why not just get a fast 1tb, trust me you won't run out of space.
I would definitely go with the 7870 though. But if you choose to get cheaper card the the 7870, why not get a 7850?

I was thinking I had seen the 7870 for around 200, but can only seem to find 250 for the good cooler options. Really trying to stay at 200ish, but get best video card for that area.
