[HELP] Upgrade Computer

Hey everyone! Recently i bought a new computer, but the graphics card, power supply, and case have been dripping on me.. I've found everything i need, but i need help to find out if they fit.

[Buying] Graphics card = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130768&name=Desktop-Graphics-Cards


[Buying] Power Supply = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139010


[Buying] Case = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146067


Original Computer...
2 x USB 3.0 ports, 6 x USB 2.0 ports, 3 x analog ports, 1 x DVI-D port, 1 x HDMI port, 1 x VGA port, 1 x S/PDIF port, 1 x PS/2 port
2 x PCIe slots, 1 x PCI Express (x16) slot, 2 x external 5.25" bays, 1 x external 3.5" bay, 4 x internal 3.5" bays


The graphics card I'd like to buy, is a PCIe 3.0, and i have 2.0. Will it still work? Or is there another graphics card, like the same with 2.0.
--------
The power supply looks good to me, unless everything will work with a lower power supply. (Currently 250W) <--- Sucks
--------
The case, i need to know if everything will fit.
( Motherboard: Micro ATX Form Factor; 24.4cm x 24.4cm )
==============================================


I don't know much about building or putting together computers, if someone could give me tips and tricks, would be great.
If you need more information, like pictures just ask. I have a max of $800 i can spend, or less would be great.

    PCIe 3.0 is backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0 so it should work.

    you do need the new PSU

    the case has a Motherboard Compatibility of E-ATX, ATX, MICRO-ATX, ITX
