No, that psu is good enough for the cards.
As for the case it fits any micro or standard atx mobos.

Also if you don't want to change the card and wait for the amd 8xxx, it gives room for a i5-3570k+z77+cooler, if you want to oc the cpu : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/eTbn

What for ? your psu is good enough, unless it's failing.

Also like i said if you don't want to swap the card, you can get this : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/eTbn
or a ssd(crucial m4 128GB) with the previous build less the card.
